Roseate Spoonbill - Ajaia ajaja - Colhereiro-americano
 NF Photo 110204 at salines close to La Ensenada

I wonder if I can get away with calling it a "work of art"? (giggling)
Well. It was dark. The first two was shot when the sun set and the birds flew to their night location. The last one early morning the day after, at 5.50. Hm, I wonder when we slept?? I post it as a WBW entry because I think it is an interesting bird. A bird I would have loved seeing more of. And, as a photo, I actually like the first shot even if it is a very bad bird shot.  Have a nice week everybody. :)

  8. “Well, art is art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water! And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now, uh... now you tell me what you know.”

  9. Lovely flash of pink!


I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
