This funny looking creature is a Eremitibis. It is endangered and there are only 220 left in this world. I managed to get a front picture and it really do look funny. It looks like it had a rough day. It is not the most beautiful birds I have seen, but it looks very interesting.
This picture is taken at a focal length of 483mm, f9 and exposure time of 1/500 sec and I used a Canon 70D. You are welcome to comment, if you have any questions.
I have been away for awhile and the reason for that is because I went to Sri Lanka to take some nice pictures of wild animals. I went to Yala National Park to see if I could get a glimpse of some leopards. I was lucky to see two. They were up in a tree and there were leaves and branches covering the leopards. So I had to be patient and wait for my moment to take the pictures. That is the challenge when you want to take pictures of animals. Good thing that I had my Tamron 150-600mm lens with me. Otherwise I would not have gotten these close ups. I also bought a Canon 70D camera body that I used to take these pictures. I will be doing a review of Canon 70D in another segment. I will be uploading some more pictures of some interesting looking birds in the coming post. For now you can enjoy these pictures.
