Small Blue, Spoonbills and a "Trample"

A few photos of the Spoonbills which remain far away while the tide is out, as I don't have a "patience gene" I haven't persisted with trying to find them close in nearer high tides, yet....

The first photo taken through a throng of people is of the scarce Small Blue Butterfly. I had hoped to go back for a decent photo with my DSLR but it's rained ever since. I was able to see first-hand why "naturalists" (mostly birders) would as a group be called, "a trample"!! (Quote; Jim Cook)

Incoming


This was a very short flight when they moved between two nearby channels where they feasted on many small, and not so small flounders
