Appreciating Deeply, Photos of Fauna Roseate Spoonbills, St. Augustine FL 03 February 2018 29 January 2018 Birds Big pink birds. I say again: Big! Pink!! Birds!!! If they didn’t exist, no one could have imagined them. But they do exist, and the world is a better place for it, even on a gray day.

I have the same reaction to seeing great blues in trees – they look overpowered for their environment. Carla 04 February 2018 at 12:10 pm 8 months ago Very cool! Isabel Gibson 04 February 2018 at 4:01 pm 8 months ago Carla – And even better in the flesh! Big Pink Birds! Laurna Tallman 04 February 2018 at 3:32 pm 8 months ago Especially on a grey day when the trees are darker grey except for vanilla frosting and the land is interminably meringue and the air is filled with floury sifting of snowflakes. A most welcome rush of roseate wings.

Thanks to this community’s poet for checking in . . .
