Very beautiful. I was photographing one of these last week at Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls. The bird untied my shoe laces haha. You really captured the majesty of the bird in this shot.

Thank you. I went to Bird Kingdom last year and saw the Pigeon there. He was very tame. Managed to get a picture of one of the Scarlet Ibis while I was there. I'd love to go back. (:

Ahh I can never get a great picture of the scarlet ibis...I like to use a macro lens and they aren't as comfortable being close to humans as some of the other birds.

My problem was they were constantly pecking at the ground. There wasn't a lot of light at the time so a fast shutter speed wasn't really an option. Finally managed to get one staying still though. I'd love to go back there with a telephoto lens sometime and try to get a better shot.

That's a pretty good shot considering what you went through haha. Looks like a handsome bird in that photo and the background is nice too.
Yeah, always great when everything is just drenched in natural sunlight. I've been really working at using manual focus to get everything to be super clear. I hate having my ISO any higher than 100 and then it's difficult to have a fast shutter speed and buhhh...you know what happens haha. Telephoto lenses are fun but I have a difficult time adjusting to them because I am so used to Macro. I wish there was a telephoto lens that can do everything a macro lens can do.
