[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
White Ibis - Eudocimus albus

One of the most numerous wading birds in Florida, and common elsewhere in the southeast. Highly sociable at all seasons, roosting and feeding in flocks, nesting in large colonies.

Note the red face, long decurved red bill, and restricted black wingtips. Immature is dark brownish; note the white belly, white rump, curved red bill.

In flight, the neck is outstretched; flocks fly in strings, flapping and gliding; often soar in circles.


Sometimes they also wade in a circle ;-)

Well exposed and POV well thought out.

Stunning shot, no other words.
The 20D+Sigma has done an amazing job here. I'm very impressed with the clarity, sharpness and exposure.
The reflection just adds even further to an award-wining shot.
Well done. 10/10

Very nice reflection on this beautiful shot of this White Ibis. Well done Gabi. :)

Hello Gabi,
beautiful natural shot - very clear and colorful. Fantastic composition and great details. Superb colors. Well done & TFS!

Very nicely seen and captured, Gabi.

Excellent continuity of the bird in its reflection.

Great job, thank you.

Hi Gabi what a catch.. compo is excellent and the contrast even better.

Great composition with this reflection. White colors are very good as exposure. Natural habitat and seeking food adds also much. Excellent work.

Very nice shot. I like the movement of the bird. Composition, stauration and sharpness are very nice.

Thanks for sharing

Perfect sharpness with wonderful light and DOF. Well seen!


This is a very sharp and nicely composed capture. The reflection adds impact to the capture. The exposure is not easy but you did great.

I hope you don't mind but I have added this to my Ibis theme.
