Sunlight, Camera, Action ...

     Actually not as much Sunlight as I would have liked but I did manage to catch a little action.

     I spotted hundreds of these beauties dotting the landscape across the lake and I so wanted a photo, they looked so incredibly beautiful. Just as I got close enough to snap the picture, someone slammed a door in one of those apartments and within seconds the sky was filled with the white birds. I did manage to get one shot and then they were gone, I guess I was very lucky to get this photo of a few of them, (there were hundreds).

     I'm not sure what they are called, maybe some type of Ibis but we have plenty of them around here. This is an up close photo I posted of one not to long ago.

Very pretty--- so nice to live so close to nature and birdies like that!  (I'm sure they can live without the door-slamming though!)  --Albert

What an absolutely stunning action shot.  You did really well. Cannot help with the identification of the birds because you have different varieties to us.  Lovely.

How lucky you are to have such things in your "own backyard."   When I think of all the devastation in your area and then see these pictures, I realize that life really does go on..........somehow.

I think it's a great shot in spite of the lighting. The lighting, I think, actually draws attention to the birds. :-) ---Robbie
