Roseate Spoonbills, St. Augustine FL

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.

    “If they didn’t exist, no one could have imagined them.” Very true

    I know they nest up in the trees, but somehow they don’t look “right” in trees…

      Jim R – Yeah, they’re a bit bigger than anything else we see in trees. I have the same reaction to seeing great blues in trees – they look overpowered for their environment.

      Laurna – Yes, they do warm the heart and lift the spirit – even here, where it’s not quite so monochromatic. Thanks to this community’s poet for checking in . . .
