Spread Your Wings

More ibis love. This time the ibis has its wings outstretched. I can’t remember if it had just landed, it was repositioning itself or if it was about to start shaking to get excess water off of itself. I like … Continue reading

Strepera graculina in Flight

I’m glad this photo turned out as well as it did in monochrome as it was rather unpleasant in colour. Shame the background isn’t a little sharper, but the pied currawong looks quite good, I think. The photo gives a … Continue reading

Gotta Shake

A shot of an ibis shaking water out of its feathers. It’s not something I get to see too often. I think I did a good job of capturing the motion of the shake, as well as some of the … Continue reading

Gulls of the Sea
