As photographers we dream about certain shots.
We hope to get that one shot. I am no exception. The White Faced Ibis is a beautiful bird. Unless you have seen an Ibis through binoculars, a 600mm lens or in a cage you would never know of it’s beauty. Flying by or from a distance it looks like a black bird with a real long bent beak. They stop in Utah for a bit this time of year. I have tried for many moons and seasons to get a shot with the extended wings of an Ibis. And in decent light. Patience payed off!!!!! I waited and waited. Watched and learned about the behavior of this animal. After preening they walk a bit with their wings extended. To dry? Don’t know. Just real darn happy with the shot.
For you fellow photographers here is the Meta….
ISO – 1000, 1000mm (600mm with 1.7 extender), 1/1000 sec @ 6.7. (No kidding 1000 across the board except the f-stop)
