aren't ibis the weirdest looking birds? the ugliest face you will ever see and the prettiest laciest behind! great shots.:)
Ohhh, I'd love to get a lacy behind shot during mating season. Fingers crossed hey?
Beautiful and exotic :) I have only ever seen ibis in the zoo and always on the ground - t hey look so much better in the trees.
It's rare to see them in a tree here too they are usually grazing in the grassy wetlands. I was thrilled to get a tree shot.
Truly spectacular! Loving the the almost monochrome feel to the second shot. #mysundayphoto
I did try adding a bit of fill light and highlights but I didn't like how it removed the contrast between the two shots so I undid the changes and put it up as is. I'm glad you like it too :o)
Great captures - I love seeing seabirds.Please come link up your photos at Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday). This week’s linkup can be found at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/04/at-keyboard.html. I hope to see you each week!
These Ibis hang out in some local wetlands, we're a fair way from the coast but I'm sure they are by the beach too. I'll be linking up tomorrow!
Brilliant captures, they look huge up in the tree Thank you for linking up
They are a pretty big bird, skinny but tall, just over 2 foot.
What a fantastic photo! Such interesting looking birds x
Close up they are even more amazing. One day...
What an amazing capture - great with the ibis contrasting against the skyline
Such a rare opportunity too, we've been walking at this spot for years and it's the first time I've seen them hanging out in that tree.
Lovely shots! I have a thing for leafless branches...
Oh, and I want to say a big thank you for your tip about gluing the lace to the veil. I might just try that. :)
Thanks. I agree leafless branches are very srtiking.
I certainly hope the veil works out for you and your daughter! I think it was Pierced Wonderings who mentioned the glue though. I suggested gelatin dipping to stiffen the organza. I wish I could come and help :o)
Wow I havenyt seen this birds before but they sure look amazing especially on the tree branches like this! #mysundayphoto
It's always exciting (I think it is anyway) to find a new bird.
Yes! I am a foreigner here and though I have been here long there still so many things that is new to me!
I love both of these shots, but that blue sky in the top shot is absolutely gorgeous! I have never seen an Ibis before, very cool!
They're a bit weird looking aren't they? But in a good way.
Great photos of interesting looking Ibis - love the backdrop too.
I'm glad you enjoyed them Kate.
What beautiful photography.
Thanks Jessica :o)
