Two years ago, when I was doing videos by developing them in PowerPoint, I featured roseate spoonbills in a pink-themed video. I didn’t understand how to override the PowerPoint defaults that kicked in during conversion, so the synchronization with the music isn’t what it could be.
This spring I went to St. Augustine twice: once en route to the Florida Keys to visit the Dry Tortugas, when I hit a grey day; and again on a trip whose primary purpose was to see and photograph these amazing birds. This time, I got the blue-sky day I wanted.
Just perched in a tree, wings folded, they look a tad ungainly, and nowhere near as pink as they do in flight.
