Australian Ibis

or a "Dump bird" as my youngest son calls them.

Not usually thought of as a beautiful bird by most people but a bit of a closer look reveals an almost human like quality, especially the eyes. I read somewhere that a good portrait shot will always have the eyes in focus. 


Great portrait shots Reflex. You have got those eyes very sharp and show the depth and structure of their eyes.

I agree with you they are very photogenic birds and probably very smart as they know how to get a feed in different habitats.

Nice set Reflex, and they are commonly known as the rubbish tip birds which is such a shame. I usually dont look at them as they are so common but i have taken a few lately as they can be an attractive biord when viewed the right way for sure. Yes you are right about the eyes being important with Birds
