I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
A white ibis on a late evening flight back to his roost in the swamp.
We don’t call them “muddy ibis” by accident. This one still has marsh mud all over his face and feet!
Wonderful capture, what a beck awesome bird !
Thanks, they are goofy birds!
Glad you liked it thanks!
Stunning!!! Beautiful Shot~~~
I’m happy you enjoyed seeing the ibis flight!
Thanks very much Pat, I appreciate you looking.
Amazing way to start Monday morning, Seeing a white ibis in flight is always a special treat.
I’m glad you enjoyed seeing the fun ibis flight Charlie, I like them a lot too!
He is a silly looking guy, but like with the wood stork, I like the ibis! Must say, his feet and bill are nicely coordinated. 😉
I agree, these guys along with the wood storks are kind of goofy, but I do really like them. 🙂
Fabulous capture!! We have White Ibis here whose bills are often blackened by all their incessant foraging and digging in the marsh, but their body feathers stay amazingly clean and white, somehow. Maybe the difference is the swamp vs. the marsh (?).
It’s odd, sometimes they can have pristine white feathers with dirty faces. While other times they have mud all over. Yup, muddy ibis, they just love sticking those impossible long curved bills down into that mud. 🙂
