"The Wings of an Angel"
Story behind the photo: This pose struck me with the similarity to how we envision the wings of angels. Perhaps artists of old had wings such as this Roseate Spoonbill’s as inspiration. Having had the opportunity to photograph this beauty on my birthday made it all the more special.
Wishing each and every one of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
