Default Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea ajaja)

January 2019 marks my 10 years in wildlife and sports photography.

It has been an interesting ride with its ups and downs. If I were to do this again I would have done it differently.

Great shot Paolo. I find the OOF green (presumably leaves) a bit distraction and if my image I would remove them. I would also remove the twigs behind their heads.

Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea ajaja) by Paolo Dolina, on Flickr

The roseate spoonbill (Platalea ajaja) nests in shrubs or trees, often mangroves, laying two to five eggs, which are whitish with brown markings.[11] Immature birds have white, feathered heads, and the pink of the plumage is paler. The bill is yellowish or pinkish.
