I almost never see roseate spoonbills when I'm out looking to shoot bird pictures. So I was quite surprised when I came across this one in a canal next to a busy park at the shuttle launch on Friday. He was going about his daily search for lunch, totally oblivious to the thousands of people hanging around waiting for the imminent launch. Good thing I had my long lens on. FYI, those plain old white birds are white ibis. Not nearly so exciting, but they help round out the picture, I think.
