The Spoonbills

 

Between September and April a flock of Yellow Billed Spoonbills can be found at one of the waterholes near Wollombi. These nomadic birds return year after year to breed. These images capture the courtship and mating rituals of the spoonbills and the tapestry of their movements in the misty dawn. The photographs were taken in full colour using a handheld Nikon D2X with a variety of lenses and have not been digitally enhanced.
