featured painting: Roseate Spoonbills, 18" X 24", acrylic
On a trip to Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, in Florida, Kalon Baughan and I really focused on photographing "Spoonies". Every afternoon a flock of spoonbills would fly into the same spot, making a great subject in the late afternoon and evening sun. On this trip Kalon designed a collapsible raft that would hold our tent at night. This allowed us to sleep on the water, and be with the birds at sunrise.
