Bird Photography – Odd Man Out

So here’s a quick post from an image taken last December. I stood and watched these whistling ducks for over an hour before this White Ibis decided to crash the party. I never grow tired of watching nature tell a story. It’s very important to slow down while you’re out shooting and wait for the story to unfold. Trust me on this folks. You won’t be disappointed.
