bird photography : white ibis

Fort De Soto is one of my favorite places to photograph birds, particularly since so many of the birds are almost tame due to the popularity of the park's beaches. This White Ibis was more concerned with his meal than with me, and with my camera's shutter snapping away rapid-fire, I captured this amazing image of the ibis downing a hapless crab he'd just plucked from the shallows. This photo has been one of my favorites, and it recently won first in the waterbirds category of Wild Bird Magazine's 2009 photo contest.
