For the past several years I have noticed ibises at our pond in the spring. Maybe next year I will remember to stake it out early in the morning and will get some better shots. I know these are pretty bad and are posted only as a record of the event. This year had to be the most ibises I have seen at one time --- 30.
The dark area on the far right is the edge of a tree I was hiding behind. This is about as close as the group came to me and they turned around when they heard my shutter clicking.
A jogger sent the group into flight and they were gone for good.
Since it was just after noon on a cloudless day I had set the camera to underexpose the white birds, but got tons of noise as a result, since I was using my D200.
