photoblog image Ibis Stork

Ibis Stork

This bird is an Ibis Stork, some times also referred to as the Yellow-billed Stork. When standing, they can reach up to 1 meter in height, so the very long yellow bill is allows it to still reach into the water while walking (this is how to hunts for fish).

It's another shot taken during my trip with Denosha and Veloran to the Jurong Bird Park in Singapore - and thanks to them for lending me their very excellent Canon 300mm f/4 IS lens (as you can see, it's tack sharp!).

You have the colours down pat here. Getting the pink in the wings can be difficult.

The detail on this is just out of the world. The DOF and color make the image pop.

Great colors - the dust of pink on the feathers adds an interesting touch.
