    Isac, what a great series of images!! I love the caption on #4, and a fantastic pic to go with it.
    Were these taken with your new Tamron 18-400 ?

      Nice work once again. The Ibis in flight looks a lot more graceful than when standing still. Care to share the settings?
      (and wot, no flashers at the lake?)

      Cheers, Gary

    A flasher was there Gary but the ducks and birds weren't phased by his offerings.

      Isac is definitely a contender for photograph of the year! Wonder what the public thought? I always wondered what "flashing the birds" meant - now I understand. As I keep saying, you can learn so much from forums such as this.

      Cheers, Gary

      ps: thanks for the settings and info - much appreciated.

      Thanks Gary. And you're very welcome, I did lighten the photo a bit, especially around the head, which always seem be dark. We're all here to learn
