BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY WEEKLY ~ 9 Egrets and Ibis

Please engorge for a better look.

These birds were photographed in April at the
Wetlands in Yeppoon, Queensland, Australia.

Flight of the Egret



Although the water levels were down, it was still
pretty exciting. Egret, White Ibis and one
Straw-necked Ibis, Threskiornis spinicollis in flight.



Frogmarching White Ibis, Threskiornis molucca
one got lucky and caught his breakfast.

  2. the first shot of one in flight is fantastic. To get such a close up shot is very hard to do. Good for you!
