Three Yellow-Billed Spoonbills (Platalea flavipes) go about their business on a property near Axedale. Using the long grass on the side of the road for cover, I was able to sneak quite close to these usually shy birds. EXIF: Canon EOS 30D : 1/500 : f10 : 400mm : ISO 250
You really captured a scene here with 3 falmingoe type birds (Yellow billed spoonbills sounds funny lol) Bery cool stuff, wish they were pink like flamingoes lol :D
GREAT GREAT SHOT!!!

Very nice. Has National Geographic offered you a job yet?! Keep showing us these great images!

Hmm nice birds, but together they don't really convey anything. Perhaps zooming in on just one?

Lovely shot Dave. I also like the way you've caught them all in different poses. Their bills and heads sort of remind me of pelicans. Are they of the same family of birds? Chris

Great colour and detail in their feathers. Keep up the amazing work.

They look as if they are performing a sacred dance :)
