My recent trip to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in Florida yielded my first views of the radiant Roseate Spoonbill. Spoonbills are fairly large wading birds (similar in habit to Herons) with varying degrees of pink on their plumage. Their easily recognizable color and shape make them a favorite for bird photography. For this creative flight blur capture I set my exposure in manual mode to have complete control over the outcome of the photo.
Exposure settings: 1/25s F/16 ISO 100, 483mm handheld.
