I'm not sure if I have seen a Sacred Ibis before. I love the way you caught him mid-step. He seems to be in a hurry to get somewhere. The browns, blacks and whites are wonderful - those tail feathers are beautiful. Excellent details of the face, eye, beak and plummage. It's wonderful to see him in this natural setting.

A "skoorsteenveer" in Afrikaans which means a chimney sweep due to the black soot on the otherwise white body. Well handled with detail, sharpness and good DOF to throw the background OOF. Nice highlight

Bird can be sharply seen and the light you have captured is fine. Colors of the plumage look natural and many color tones can be observed.
Thank you for sharing,

splendida immagine di questo Ibis catturato in una bella postura con un ottimo POV, moplto buona la definizione dei dettagli, molto bella la luce che rende colori dalle tonalitŕ calde e crea un bel riflesso sull'occhio.

Hello again Peter,
A fine standard POV capture of a Sacred Ibis taken with excellent sharpnress and lighting against a fine contrasting BG.
It's amazing that the Ancient Egyptians should make this ugly bird sacred!
TFS this 'beauty'

Excellent capture of this Sacred Ibis walking. Great pose and composition, sharp details and natural BG.
Kijkt heel bezorgd en heeft haast. Waarschijnlijk naar Fortis toe....of was het ABN-Amro.:-)
Ik vind die kleuren mooi. 't Is niet echt zwart of wit; alsof ze gepatineerd zijn door stof, regen en wind. Zon ook zeker.
Heel mooie ibis.
Bedankt en groet,

Interesting species of bird, the "silent" Ibis. I like this very vivid picture of this bird, seeming to walk around with a lot of determination. Amazing the variety of birds you have seen in Ethiopia.
Un grand merci
