'Glossy ibis, who knows, What magic they'll bring, Stay close, be still, And let your heart sing.'

It's incredible how different aesthetic elements can create a unique and artful story when you stick like glue to a bird's sometimes ever-so-subtle behaviours. While this applies to all animals, bird photography can be challenging as they are often unpredictable creatures. Nevertheless, it is the most satisfying pastime in nature photography. In these photos, the colours reflected in the water and the bird's feathers were pleasing on their own, but when the bird dipped its toes and bill briefly and created a ripple, it was magical. I love following birds as they do their business, waiting for that unique moment. It's a joyful experience, and I can't help but exclaim a 'yes' in my head when I capture that perfect moment. Who knows? My glossy ibis will perform something equally magical if I remain patient and watch closely.
