Impressive capture...both the bird and the snake! Makes me wonder-did the the Ibis actually eat it?

Wow! This is excellent! But I would be checking the ground by my feet to make sure the snake didn't have any buddies with him!

A wonderful action and behavioral image, Debapratim. Great exposure of the Ibis, and the snake in the bill takes this to the next level. Excellent work!

Debapratim, Excellent story-telling image. Hope the snake is not poisonous.
