The African Sacred Ibis The African Sacred Ibis by Sudipto Sarkar is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License. Another beautiful bird in the studio… This one’s apparently a sub class of the Ibis genus… The one thing that I found sacred about this Ibis was the contrast between the black and white in its forage. And it’s got thick strong legs. A kick from this guy will be very bad news. So, I kept my distance… 🙂 EXIF Info Exposure f/4.0 1/4000 sec ISO 800 Focal Length in 35mm 135 Date taken 2017:07:29 12:17:07 Camera NIKON D3200 Spread the love Tweet Post navigation Grey Crowned CraneI Hide, You Seek! 10 Comments Just beautiful and so unusual! Reply Very unusual indeed, Christine… Turns out there are a lot of varieties of Ibises… This one's comparatively rare… At least in South East Asia… 🙂 Reply A very beautiful image of this striking bird. It does look big and strong. Reply It is big, Steve! Some four and a half feet, from what I assumed… It came up to my neck in height… And that's without stretching its neck… 🙂 Reply Excellent clarity captured in its plumage!! Reply Thanks, Steven… 🙂 Reply that is some serious beak, Sudipto. and it is a very unusual bird to my eyes. Reply It was unusual for me too, Ayush… I guess this species is just rare here in our part of the world… 🙂 Reply I'd stay away from him too! The legs may be strong, but it's that beak that scares me!!!Wonderful capture, Sudipto. Reply Yup… It is a scary beak! 🙂 Thanks, Lisa… 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
