A well-posed flight shot with the sun at the perfect angle to bring out the rich plumage colors of this ibis.

Photographers Comment

I am Dennis E Kirkland, a freelance photographer. I took this image of the White-faced Ibis attempting to land into a marsh area alongside a road in late morning light near Burns, Oregon. I was using a Canon 600 mm f4 lens on a Canon EOS 1d Mark III camera on tripod.
