"Just Showing Off"
Story behind the photo: This Roseate Spoonbill spent quite a bit of time bathing its pink plumage in the waters of the Myakka River. Then it would flap its wings to dry them and repeat the process. My shutter was pressed down during much of that time. They are so lovely, it is difficult to figure out which photos I like the most from the series.
