15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
It was about halfway through the Roseate Spoonbill mating season (April 2016) so I went to Smith Oaks Rookery to get some photos of the hatchlings. While I was there a pair of Great Egrets that had apparently gotten a late start. The male was still gathering nesting material and I was able to get this photo on one of his return trips to the trees.
