CAMERA CRITTERS, SATURDAY'S CRITTERS AND BIRD D'POT


As I wanted to join in with Anni's Bird D'Pot, as well as Misty's Camera Critters and Eileen's Saturday's Critters, and have not taken any decent photos of birds lately, I went back into my archives and found these.  They were taken in Florida in January of this year.  Seems a long time ago now!


This is a Roseate Spoonbill and you can read all about him at this link.  Such an extraordinary bird!














Something of the prehistoric when looking at these feet don't you think?

  
Many thanks to our hosts for the hard work they put into these fun memes.
