This is a great capture Mario with great sharpness and action. I have a hard time reacting fast enough for birds. It is an interesting looking bird too.

Hi Mario,
Beautiful, just beuatiful!!!!
The eye contact established is excellent and it is almost as if the baby Ibis took the flight while modeling for you.The lighting is wonderful and the exposure perfect.The motion blur in the wings and the trailing water droplets off the feet add to the dramatic effect
TFS this beauty & Cheers

Hi Mario,

Outstanding shot! Superbly focused at head of this beautiful white ibis. Very sharp, great details.
Great timing for capturing this moment.


A superb and dynamic capture of an Ibis during take off, trailing some water Mario, the exposure is right on the spot, the bird finely illuminated against a darkish BG. TFS this fine scene my friend.

I keep finding more of your great images. This is excellent - very sharp and the colours are right on. In my camera club the comment would be that the bird is too centred. Better to give it more space to fly into, ie on the right, with a little less on the left.

What surprised you beautiful ibis in flight.In out wings across the image is clear.
