Ibis checks the gloss

Glossy Ibis' are stunning birds with a wide range of subtle colours, sheens and glooses within the plumage. This bird posed for about an hour on the flash-flood meadow whilst it fed and preened. Exposure is a nightmare though, especially in the midday sun.

EXIF Detail: Aperture Priority. Ap F/10. Exposure 0.0EV. ISO 200. Shutter 1/60s. Tripod mounted. Taken midday.
