Brightening Up A Grey Day
Yesterday evening was cloudy with grey skies and light rain. Mostly a gloomy sort of day all around.
But at one point I looked across the marsh and saw a familiar face, uh I mean bill, arriving on the scene.
I couldn’t mistake those bright pink wings and I got a great look at them when the spoonie turned and banked hard to the right.
All it took was one lone spoonbill to show up all by himself and instantly the day was much brighter!
Il cielo cupo si è tinto di rosa!!
Bellissimi scatti caro Phil.
Grazie Pat! 🙂
Your attraction to spoonies remains unwavering I see. Great way to brighten your day.
Oh absolutely. I spot a spoonie coming in and the egrets, ibis, herons, storks, pelicans, ospreys and alligators all get shoved to the side. Right now a bald eagle would trump a spoonbill but only because I currently get more spoonie ops then eagle ops.
Yup, a pink bird still manages to look bright even on a dark, cloudy day.
Fascinating birds, and two great captures!
I can’t help myself, I see these pink guys and I just *have* to take more photos of them! Thanks for looking!
Beautiful! I love the second shot.
Thanks a bunch Pat!
Just love everything about the spoonbills. They really bring brightness!
There is something about these birds that always brings on a smile and I have to stop and watch whenever I see one.
Wow, absolutely amazing…Love watching spoonbills take flight.
They really are fun and amazing birds and I’m always more happy when some are around.
Fabulous shots, Phil. Those pink wings would brighten up any day. 🙂
Yes indeed, nothing beats a grey gloomy day like big bright pink wings! 🙂
They certainly do Phil!
These birds are fun every time I see one, even if the lighting is awful. Still fun!
What a great way to start a grey Sunday! 🙂
They do make a rainy cloudy day a bit brighter for sure!
Awesome second image. Photography always brightens my day even if I don’t get great shots like these.
Thank you for checking these out and glad you like seeing the spoonies! I always try to get out to take some photos but it’s a real bonus to have one of these guys come swooping in!
This beautiful bird would brighten any day, even in simply a photograph!
