Last year, I wrote about an injured Great Blue Heron surviving and thriving after a partial amputation to its wing in "Wherein He Gets the Girl". This year, the wonderful photographer and blogger Phil Lanoue has been chronicling the recovery of an injured Spoonbill in a salt marsh there. Not only are Phil's photos always excellent, Phil really cares about his subjects. There are photographers who mainly care about "getting the shot," without seeming to care much about the wildlife in their captures. Not Phil. That is something I really respect in a nature photographer. I rarely reblog, but am moved by Phil's photos and words about the denizens of his salt marsh, and especially about one particular Spoonbill.
