The northern bald ibis, hermit ibis, or waldrapp (Geronticus eremita) is a migratory bird found in barren, semi-desert or rocky habitats, often close to running water. This 70–80 cm (28–31 in) glossy black ibis, which, unlike many members of the ibis family, is non-wading, has an unfeathered red face and head, and a long, curved red bill. It breeds colonially on coastal or mountain cliff ledges, where it typically lays two to three eggs in a stick nest, and feeds on lizards, insects, and other small animals.

Bird captured in Apenheul, a monkey park in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands.

Dank je. Ook de achtergrond vind ik verbazingswekkend. Er is niets aan bewerkt. Die 200-500 is echt een lieveling van mij....

Fantastic pic

Thanks Phil. I captured this one with my new Nikkor 200-500 mm (with an amazing stabilisation build in, and the sharpness...). The bokeh is as-is. No postprocessing in that part of the picture. So most of the credits to Nikon....

Very nice, they come in from the marshland in the dry months.
Well cropped and taken, not easy to approach them

Thanks Michel and although it looks like it is manupulated, that is not the case. It is the fantastic bokeh of the Nikon 200-500 mm f/5.6E ND VR . Despite his weight, I do love this lens.

Thank you very much. I agree, the bokeh of Nikon 200-500 f5.6 is really great.
