  1. I have NEVER seen a shot like this of a spoonbill, Utham ! – every other one I’ve come across has the spoonbill doing the water-dragging-through thing with its bill, whereas here is it talking to someone. Delightful ! 🙂

    • 🙂 ! It was getting dark and this bird was alone among the grass .
      May be it was calling its friends !
      I noticed the striking contrast – the dark red on its face and the vibrant green in background .
      Glad you liked the image , MR !

      Thank you .


  2. Beautiful spoonbill! It looks as if he is calling to another, perhaps a mate or another species. The colors are vibrant and alive; this is another good catch, Uthamz.

    • This bird was seen alone among the grass , Jackie !
      As you said , may be it was calling a mate or a friend , as it was already late in the evening.

      I have not seen a similar one before.
      The contrast of the dark red around eyes and the green in background was striking !

      Thank you , Jackie !
