After spending some time with Michael Tapes (Capture One, WhiBal, YarcPlus, etc.), who had recently moved to Florida, we returned for another drive around the loop at Merritt Island. I'm very glad we did, as we found this Roseate basking in the glow of the late afternoon light. I couldn't believe how beautiful the light was, and really enjoyed shooting him. (One branch near its neck was cloned out.)
