Glossy ibis

Post by helired3 »

i took my partner out Saturday to try and get her some cattle egret photos but sadly they had moved on so we decided to just have a walk around a near by reserve and managed to fined not one but two rare visitors to the uk glossy ibis. it started of very overcast then got lucky with a burst of sun to show up some of the colours of these birds.

Very nice, Ian. They're reasonably common here in Oz but always a pleaseure to see them, particularly in the light that you have captured them.
