Spoonbill with wings flat – Steven Blandin

Roseate Spoonbill in flight

Roseate Spoonbill in flight – Tampa Bay rookery, Florida
ISO 3200 | f/4 | 1/1000 sec. | Manual mode | AI servo rear focusing
This photograph was created with the Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM lens (Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM review), the Canon EOS 7D mark II on tripod while wading in the water. Have a look at the equipment I typically carry with me.

The photograph above was created at the Tampa Bay Rookery, during my last Spoonbill photography tour. Some in-between positions in bird in flight photography can be very attractive given the situation. In this case, the beautiful symmetry really gives a strong touch. Plus, some detail from the upper-wings as well as the under-wings are visible. The spots of red from the upper-wings only visible during breeding season are very easily admired.

I invite you to have a peek at the Bird & Wildlife Photography website to see other beautiful image creations and check out the Alaska Bald Eagle photo workshops and Alaska Bald Eagle photo workshops.

Great blue heron

I adopted this Heron colony to help the Maine inland fisheries and wildlife . I go in a few times and count the young and how many nests ect. It is fun to do, and I get to photograph them and the young. This is a photo of an adult returning to the nest to feed the young, and the other parent then leaves to go hunting.
