An excellent incoming pose, Biru. Love the backlight penetrating the wings and tail. Very nice image.

Just a great flight pose and the shallow dof makes the white bird pop very well.

Nice landing pose and BG.. I don not know the species well enough but
is there a yellow caste to the bird?

The beautiful backlight on the spread wings turns this ugly duckling into a swan, Biru!  (Well, it turns it into a lovely image of a black headed ibis). :)
