White Ibis, leaving my spot quickly.
A large group of Ibis were in some scrub trees and let me closer than usual. This was a marshland where few people can go so I’m assuming they saw no threat.
My gear is ‘getting long in the tooth’, a nice way to say wearing out. Taking these I was fighting to get everything right.
This single Ibis left the group giving me a good opportunity to test everything. Apparently it all worked fine.
A fast Ibis exit is not easy to catch and I captured this first flight fairly well.
