Weekly Photo Challenge: Spoonbill Sunset

by Andrea O'Connell

There was a beautiful sunset last evening in Ft. Lauderdale.  So many different shades of pink and orange and brown filled the horizon as if painted there….and, I didn’t have my camera!

But, when a Roseate Spoonbill came to visit me one afternoon, I shot pictures until the light faded to near nothingness.

Can you see how the sunset seems to tease the water as it moves in with its colors?
