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.
Well in this case, for a young white ibis, it’s more like king of the oyster beds. At least until the adults start showing up, then it’s time to leave and go hang out with the rest of the kids.
Beautiful shot, love the wing span, looks like a fan, beautiful creatures.
Thanks Linda! And you gotta love those muddy feet!
That second photo is just amazing. Great captures. 😀
Thanks so much! And how about those muddy feet?! 🙂
What a cute little guy.
I’m sure his mom loved him when he was a baby too. 🙂 Just like the alligators.
I am so used to my own settings around here..,of mangroves and pond apples and such with the ubiquitous White Ibis..that its refreshing to see your habitat with all those neat looking oyster shells sticking up vertically. Like a little oyster forest for the ibis to forage in.
The oysters as seen here are visible like this only during low tide. As the tide comes in the get covered over and the wading birds will go elsewhere to feed. It’s also funny to see the oysters ‘spit’ water. 🙂
Thanks for checking these out!
Well, she certainly unceremoniously muddied her legs/feet up! I love these young ibis. The wings on mom are stunning.
We don’t call them “muddy ibis” for nothing. They often get their faces covered in mud too. Rare to see a clean one. 🙂
Such striking birds!
