Ibis, a heron like wading bird. Ibises inhabit warm regions around the world, some of them visiting colder latitudes in summer. They range in length from about 20 to 30 inches (50 to 75 cm). Some are white, with colored heads, legs, and tails; others have variously colored plumage. Their necks, legs, and down-curving bills are long, their tails short.
Ibises feed in mud and shallow water on small animals. They build nests of sticks on the ground or in trees or bushes. The female lays three to five greenish or bluish eggs, sometimes spotted with brown. Both parents tend the eggs and young.
The sacred ibis is a large white bird with black head, tail, and legs. It is found in Africa south of the Sahara. It was sacred to the ancient Egyptians, but is no longer found in Egypt. The glossy ibis is widely distributed, being found in Florida, the West Indies, Europe, southern Asia, Australia, and Africa. The white-faced ibis and the white ibis are found only in the Americas. The scarlet ibis, closely related to the white ibis, is native to South America, where it is hunted for its bright plumage and as food. In the early 1960's, the scarlet ibis was introduced into the United States

That has wonderfully captured the white plumage of this beautiful sacred ibis!
We know it is not easy to portray animals white colors, always round the ghost of overexposure.
A big hug from Argentina

La profondeur de champ et/ou la lumière n'est pas excellente mais le sujet est relativement bien valorisé.
