I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
This past week I enjoyed watching a spoonbill jump off from the salt marsh at low tide and take a quick flight over to another spot.
The first location looked good enough to me, but what do I know? 🙂
Scatti spettacolari, come sempre bravissimo Phil!!
They’re all awesome shots, but the glow on the last one is really neat. Maybe he just wanted to give you a little better light! 🙂
Sometimes I think they just like to show off and maybe they also know that early evening setting sunlight makes them look their best. 😉
You are so amazing at capturing action…Love the stories that your photos tell about the spoonbills.
Thank you Charlie, so glad you enjoy seeing the photos and hearing about the wildlife activity out there!
He smelled something tastier. Silly wabbit. 🙂
Sometimes the grass is always greener just a bit down the marsh. Like I said, one spot looked as good as another at least to me but I’m sure they see things that I don’t. 🙂
Beautiful series, Phil—Love the Spoonbills!
Well I’m very happy you liked these photos and enjoy seeing the spoonbills. They are amazing birds and I never get tired of watching and photographing them!
Wonderful set as always, but the third one is really great to me.
Have a nice day Phil 🙂
Thank you so much Sophie, I’m very happy you enjoyed seeing our pink friend in action!
Thanks for checking these out and glad you liked them!
Great captures, Phil. It really does look as though he took one giant flying leap. 🙂 Love the light in the last pic.
Thanks a million Sylvia, glad you liked these spoonie pics! That early evening warm lighting is my favorite and it’s always best when it coincides with low tide in the salt marsh.
Love how he comes in for a landing! Great shots, and he is just the most lovely color of pink. That light on his wings, and the background on the last photo shows him at his best.
The spoonbill landing shots are always among my favorite. I can take several shots and no two are really alike.
I’m also happy when the warm setting sunlight happens at the same time as low tide in the salt marsh, it does make a pink bird look even more fancy! 🙂
