[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
American White Ibis (Eudocimus albus) is a species of wading bird of the ibis family Threskiornithidae which occurs from the mid-Atlantic coast of the United States south through most of the New World tropics.
It occurs in marshy wetlands and pools near the coast. It also occurs on mowed grass and has become common in some city parks. It builds a stick nest in trees, bushes, or over water, and 2 to 5 eggs are typically laid. White ibises are monogomous and colonial, usually nesting in mixed colonies with other wading species.
This ibis feeds by probing with its long, downcurved beak. Its diet consists of various fish, frogs and other water creatures, as well as insects.
Adults are 65 cm long with a 95 cm wingspan. They have all-white plumage except for black wingtips (visible in flight) and reddish bills and legs. The red bill blends into the face of breeding birds; non-breeding birds show a pink to red face. Juveniles are largely brown with duller bare parts; they are distinguished from the Glossy and White-faced Ibises by white underparts and rumps.
Like the other species of ibis, the White Ibis flies with neck and legs outstreched, often in long, loose lines.

Hi Lawhill,
That's a very funny title!
I know very well that angry expression, but not from animals precisely...
This is a very clear shot of this white ibis.
Great the action catched here, as well as the expression.
You know, the crop on the top of the wings...the only nit...
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

The pose of the Ibis and expression are outstanding. You had great POV. The exposure is excellent. Nice details and focus. Great composition.

Great pov and composition. Yeah, a little close crop on the wing but the whole concept is great! :)

Hi Lawhill,

Your caption is perfect - it made me laugh. A wonderful pose with those raised wings and that look on his face with the opened beak. Wonderful colors and details. A beautiful setting.

Hello Lawhill

Well composed in the frame.It looks like you are going to have to run.Very good details in this large bird.The Good colour saturation.TFS


bonjour lawhill
vous n'avez plus de probleme de taille d'image a ce que je vois!
bonne exposition et une belle expression dans la posture de l'oiseau,dommage que le cadrage soit un petit peu trop serré et coupe le bout des ailes.

Hello Lawhill,
I like this movement you captured and this very nice perspective and composition. Colors and details are good too. The image is a bit noisy and I wonder where it is coming from as you used a relatively low ISO. This is a nice one with great notes. Thanks,
