2019—Young Roseate Spoonbill

There’s just something about baby animals.  They’re always cute, even when they might grow into something very un-cute.  Take, for instance, the Roseate Spoonbill.  Roseate Spoonbills are spectacular from a distance.  Their feathers are pink and in flight, that pink is stunning.  On close inspection, however, the Roseate Spoonbill is one of the most homely creatures and in my view, the homeliest bird.  But,  even young Roseate Spoonbills exhibit that baby cuteness, even with that ungainly bill and face.

    Beautiful composition and bird! How can you say they’re hideous when mature?!!!

    Besides -the bills make environmentally sound disposable flatware AND great castanets.
