bird photography : white ibis

Finding a White Ibis out in open water that made for a good photograph was a special delight for John; all of his previous sightings of the birds had been amongst the weeds and brush at the edge of swampland, yielding unacceptably cluttered photos.

Photography Notes:
The clean white plumage of the ibis made for challenging photography in the bright mid-morning sun; preventing any blown highlights yet rendering a well-exposed background required underexposing the entire image and then processing it in Photoshop.
