Into the golden morning...

By ShedMan  
This African Sacred Ibis came and sat on the roof of a house opposite us recently. I took some shots of him walking up and down the roof then set my camera to 'sports' mode and waited for him to lift off. He did so a couple of seconds later, allowing me just enough time to get one shot of his lift-off. Although he's black and white, the early morning rising sun made him look golden.


P.S. If you look at the map location, I've cross-haired the actual rooftop he was taking off from.
