Hi there, are these Egrets or some other birds? Wonderful silhouette shot, skillfully done.

Thank you for the review. They are a couple of Ibis.

Behind The Lens

Location
Close to my home in a wetland, western Sri Lanka.
Time
Early morning as the sun was just rising.
Lighting
Natural light in its finest hour.
Equipment
Canon 5D mark III, 100-400mm mark II canon lens, Hand held.
Inspiration
I noticed the sun hitting the clouds opposite the trees making a very attractive backdrop to the nesting birds.
Editing
Yes. A bit of sharpening , contrast and light adjustments and sharpening.
In my camera bag
Since this was a planned shoot I took my 5D mark III and the 100-400mm mark II lens.
Feedback
Being observant of the lighting conditions and composing an image you want to create in your mind long before point and shoot.
