After spending some time with Michael Tapes (Raw Shooters Essentials, Capture One, WhiBal, YarcPlus, etc.), who had recently moved to Florida, we went for a drive around the Black Point Wildlife Drive 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.)
