Wings-Up Spoonbill

This Roseate Spoonbill was doing a nice pose while coming in for a landing at High Island’s rookery.  Was able to get his head sharp with some motion in the wings with the slow shutter speed.  It was a cloudy day but it worked for this photo.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens mounted on tripod with Wimberley II gimbal head

1/200 sec @ F4, ISO 500, spot metering
