Hi Heila

Thanks for your Spoonbill pics, it's great to see these two birds in action. It looks like you had a lot of fun watching them. I like the way you captured the back-lighting on the wing of the Spoonbill chasing the other one in your 4th picture.

The fourth photo is very cool - spoonbill with beak open chasing the other one!

Great action photographs Heila!

We have only seen single spoonbills and they always seemed so peaceful and mild-mannered, until now!
