Very good in-flight picture. Good composition, sharp details, nice colours and lighting of white parts successfully retains details. Good work, practice has paid off.

very good in flight shot mate, very sharp with good detail and you've done a great job on the exposure too. I agree, in flight shots are very hard to do well as i have been finding out!

Nice detail on the white feathers and your shot is well framed. I think the poor old Ibis is quite ugly but I like your theory of them being plentiful so good to practice on!

Anyway the image is great. Wonderful in flight Ibis.

Gethin, this is a fantastic sharp in-flight shots of an Ibis. This is awesome. The contrast seen between the bird and the sky is great. You've positioned him perfectly in the frame. Very nicely done.
Don't you wish Sea-Eagles were just as plentiful? Actually I'd like to see a flock of the Ibis too someday, I've only seen ones and twos in Sydney.
Thanks, enjoyed! John

Excellent warm color, details, DOF, pose, and well exposed Gethin. The time of day is everything in these shots, because you must depend on the lights angle/direction. The early morning light worked out very well here.
You say they are plentiful where you are. Would love to have a go at getting an inflight of a large bird myself for change..

Hello Gethin !
Wow, wonderful in-fliht capture ! You have perfectly frozen the bird, in a wonderful pose and with excellent details. I also like the composition and the blue sky as a BG, and of course the bird itself is very beautiful, I love this black head and this nicely curved beak. Very well done !

You cracked mate what a superb in-flight shot of this Ibis, perfect blue sky, excellent detail in the plumage and wings, and with the tips of the wings being a little soft really gives the sense of movement, just perfect.
Cheers Rick :)

you have a nice ibis species in Australia, a bit different in colours we have here. The flying is magnific and you´ve captured perfectly with great level of details. The light is just right gives to it a nice effect without "burn" the white body zones.

Capturing a bird in flight is not easy. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the ibis. The subject is well frame. The picture is clear and precise. The light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

A very well composed pic that depicts good lighting. The sharpness and clarity is also good as the subject is moving and never easy to capture like this. The POV and BG also add quality top a great image!
