2020—That Beak

There is something intriguing about the spatula-like beak of a Roseate Spoonbill. Although it is large, unwieldy looking, and vastly different from most other birds, it can sweep through muddy pond water to feel for its next meal, deftly preen its feathers, and carry sticks and twigs for its nest. In this image, the bright pink bird seems to be eating something, tiny bits of something are squirting from its beak. Taken in St. Augustine, FL several years ago, using a Nikon Df with a 600mm f/4 lens.
