Photographed in New Jersey as the Ibis was about to land. It's always interesting to see how different the iridescence looks depending on pose and light angle. Please click on image for more details.

Amazing colours in the wing, and that background is a great contrast. Perfectly timed.

Fantastic. I like the colours of the undersides of the wings, I had no idea the underside could be that colourful.

Beautiful pre-landing pose and wonderful iridescence, Axel.

Superb image. Iridescence is excellent, particularly when clicked.

Taken at just the right moment, Axel, fine background colours captured here, as well.
