Glorious trek today! Learned something new too! The difference between the White-faced Ibis and Glossy Ibis. The two get confused alot because the details are in the face. Our Glossy Ibis has a dark iris and face color while the diagnostic field marks for the White-faced Ibis is a red iris and face!

I will link a comparison in the workshop :0) and a picture of the location where I spied this lil guy. It was a cloudy day but when the sun peeked out boy did his wings glisten.

with wonderful light, excellent focus,
sharpness and details, TFS

Hello Brenda,
You have posted many beautiful images here on TN, but this is definitely one of your best in my opinion. I love everything about it, the subject is simply gorgeous and the quality is outstanding!!
You show this colorful Ibis in it's natural habitat and have obtained exceptional detail and excellent exposure in doing so. Your WS images are educational and your notes very informative.

Hi Brenda
He does light well when the sun hits him. Good capture of detail from a good POV with good eye contact. Good composition and DOV. Don't get a boot full, looks very mucky.
Thanks for sharing
Best regards

Hello brenda,

Hello Brenda,

Hope you are enjoying 2013. I apologize for staying away from your pages for so long though do have a cursory glance at all the photos. It is time which hinders, puts so many limitations in the way, hope I am forgiven.
This shot is simply superb and I'll second Ron here for the quality and class. One of your best but you have already so many best shots under your belt....smile. I am feeling jealous.
Thanks a lot for sharing the top class photo and an educational informative note....take care...warm regards/Abid

Hi Brenda,
precious capture in very natural habitat, .. good detail and colours rendered ..


Hi Brenda,
This truly a perfect shot of the Glossy Ibis showing the normally dull body plumage in it's magnificent brilliance in the sun at the right angle. What impresses me more is that your focus point was spot-on on the (head area) eye! The DOF and low POV makes this a perfect compo. Well done my friend.
Best regards,
