African Spoonbill

By johnriley1uk  
The Spoonbill was asleep for most of the time I waited, but eventually he opened an eye. Then, obligingly, he lifted his leg to hide the tag whilst I took the shot. I could almost imagine him saying, "Have you done now?" before he wearily closed his eye again, heading back to his snooze. It's a tough life being an African Spoonbill at Martin Mere.

He even looks like a co-operator. TG

He reminds me of Pinochio and he's told a lie. And he's freaked by his long beak. Excellent capture John.
Superb image
