[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The red-naped ibis (Pseudibis papillosa) also known as the Indian black ibis or just the black ibis, is a species of ibis found in parts of the Indian Subcontinent. The sexes are alike. It has a curlew-like long down-curved bill, a black head with a patch of crimson, and a white patch near the shoulder. This largish black bird is found at lakes, in marshes, in riverbeds and on irrigated farmland—it is not as aquatic as many other species of ibis. It is gregarious and generally forages on margins of wetlands in small numbers.

Hello Smitha,
Excellent image with lovely natural colors and perfect details as usual. Superb bird...which I never meet in the wild.....
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Smitha - No doubt a beautiful species this Black Ibis. As usual a nice presentation with attractive low POV shot. Like its BG and splendid focus on bird. Details and sharpness is well too. Thanks for sharing with useful NOTE. Best wishes - Srikumar

Hello Smitha,
a fine picture, I don't think the sharpness is problem, the problem is the rules of TN who does not allowed more than 800px.
I like this picture, itäs well exposed, we can see details och shimmering tones in the plumage, really nice.
The short DOF is also fine, the bird stand out fine from the BG.
Well done, mf.

  • Great
