    My submission for PhotoFortnight's theme of "red", a slightly-haggard roseate spoonbill in an out-of-the-way enclosure at the Assiniboine Park Zoo.

    The lighting was inadvertent – this bird was on a perch just beneath an opaque skylight, perhaps ten feet away from me and another ten feet above the ground. With select cropping of the background, it gives an in-the-studio effect I really like.

      Without the explanation I would have asked ... Were you belly to the ground for this one? You don't see many people THAT serious about photography at the zoo!
