Here is an early morning shot of a Roseate Spoonbill from the High Island, TX rookery. There appears to be more of them around this year. Most of the nesting is being done by the Great Egrets but the Spoonbills are always fun to watch and shoot. This guy was taking off and I was able to catch some wing blur and decent light in his eye.
Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens on tripod with Sidekick gimbal mount.
Aperture priority, 1/160 sec @ F5.6, ISO 400, spot metering + 2/3 exposure compensation, no flash
