Click to preview The Roseate Spoonbill photo book

A tribute to one of the most beautiful birds in North America, this book is a chronicle of pictures taken along the gulf coast over the past two years.

The glorious coloration of the Roseate Spoonbill is an awe inspiring sight. When you see them spread their wings, especially during mating season, it is truly "A RHAPSODY IN ROSE".

It has been a two year long quest to capture enough good pictures of this magnificent creature. I think that this book will tell you a lot about the bird and give your senses a thrill as you see the beauty and majesty of this magnificent bird.

The Roseate Spoonbill is now off the endangered list but is still on the "Species of Great Concern" list due to the loss of their habitat and pesticides.


About the Author

Donald Hume
djhu Prairieville, Louisiana, USA

Following my retirement and relocation to the Gulf Coast, I immediately began photographing one of my favorite subjects, the birds of the Gulf Coast. I have always enjoyed nature photography, particularly of butterflies, but living in an area with such a plethora of beautiful birds, one cannot resist the urge to capture their beauty.

In 2010 I formed Hume Nature Photography with my wife who joined me in capturing the beauty of nature. We are dedicated to capturing the beauty and artistry of nature and hope that our work achieves that goal. The beauty of nature is all around us and our hope is that we can give you a few moments of pleasure while enjoying the great "beauty and artistry of nature" that surrounds us.

I just browse Donald's new book, it is just amazing! The details of the birds, their feathers, colors, habitat and customs is just perfect.
At his age (and I know it) instead of being in a rocking chair with your grandchildren on your lap, he is at a swamp at daybreak to give us the pleasure of admiring the beauty of these birds through his lens.
Thanks Don, you did it again.
