Fisherbird’s Friend - II

Here is a link to the 1st in this series with some info: Fisherbird’s Friend - I

Again, the white ibis is doing the primary work, using its beak to prod for prey and flush it out, while the friendly snowy egret is waiting for a chance to clean up any fleeing prey the ibis might miss.

So beautiful Gabi!
Really nicely arranged and composed!
I love the reflections!


I like the photo very much, sharpness, reflections and light on their eyes.


Fantastic capture Gabi, great clarity and sharpness. That big Sigma always gets the results in the right hands. Very nice post, well done.

This an awfully nice photo, technically, artistically as well as documenting an interesting animal behavior. It wins on all levels! Thanks : )

Hi Gabi,
I really like this series of yours. Very interesting.
This Sanibel Island seems to be a gem of a bird watching place. I hope I can go there someday.
In the meantime I am really enjoying your captures of all these different birds living together and helping each other out.
Excellent pose and composition, and the focus and exposure are spot on. Thanks. : )

Just amazing capture Gabi! Very arty composition with birds reflected in water, excellent quality. And I like different colours of theirs legs ;-)

Hi Gabi

Another stunning shot from you. This is becoming a habit.... I like it, keep 'em coming! Your management of the whites is outstanding. The shot is perfect IMO. No nits here. Thanks.

HI Gabi,
it's a very nice picture with lovely colours.
Well composed, good POV and details.
The white is slightly to white, just a minor nit.
Great work.

Hi Gabi,
Still thinking of how soon I can return to this bird photographers paradise. Exposure looks great in this bright light. The colors look perfect. Nice sharp detail, with great depth and clarity. Well done!

Another good capture Gabi,
Good detail, colours and sharpness. Composition and exposure are spot on. Good framing and POV.
Thanks for posting, Enjoy the rest of the week.

Encore une belle prise de cette espace d'eau magique :-)
Félicitations et merci pour l'envoie.


Beautiful shot of these 2 fishing buddies with excellent exposure. Well done Gabi. :)

A wonderful composition set against this watery BG, Gabi.

Your series is quite interesting, and you have documented these cooperative efforts with exceptional shots of their progress.

Great details, colors, lighting, POV, and BG.

Thank you!
