Like the title: "LOST". In other words: It walked right into your lap!!!
Great piece of photography work.
As usual, detailed and highly educative notes.
Regards from Mario in Canada.
P.S. Both W/S ed images are beautiful.

Hello Peter- Beautiful species this "Sacred Ibis". I saw this species in South Africa, but was so far. Well captured in your area. Details on facial portion is really attractive. Quite well managed harsh light which was on its back. I like the way your captured its eye, which is not an easy task when it's totally black. I like its natural habitat too, as well as Useful NOTE. Thanks for sharing. Regards- Srikumar

a very interesting series of shots,the Ibis is nicely exposed,not always easy with black and white birds with the water droplets a big plus.
Warm regards Les.

Ongelooflik dat hierdie voŽl so ver buite sy habitat voorkom. En wat 'n uitstaande foto. 'n Wetenskaplike verklaring word benodig en ek hoop dat jy dit hier sal byvoeg sodra die kenners dit aan jou verduidelik het. Goed waargeneem en welgedaan!

A fairly big bird with contrasting black and white colours on it, Peter.
Very nice image in which the bird looks beautiful in the marshy looking habitat near your home.
Thanks and regards.

You were very fortunate to have captured this bird so close to home. It gave you some really nice poses, I especially like the one where it has caught a fish.
A very stout looking bird with beautiful black and white coloration. I would bet that there are not many birds that would push this guy around. It looks like it would be the boss in any situation. Great shot!!
