  1. Amazing backlight on this one! Posted 6 years ago
    1. Thanks a lot. I love silhouette photos the most of all, as it captures the back-light, but unfortunately loses the animal's coloring and pattern. It is a sacrifice I am comfortable with so far. Posted 6 years ago

The African Spoonbill is a long-legged wading bird of the ibis and spoonbill family ''Threskiornithidae''. The species is widespread across Africa and Madagascar, including Botswana, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. It lives in marshy wetlands with some open shallow water and nests in colonies in trees or reedbeds. They usually don't share colonies with storks or herons.
