A White Ibis flies in for a landing against a pale-peach sky at sunset in Oviedo, Florida. Reader Linn Smith took the photo. She says she likes that it shows the bird's "small body frame held together with soft white feathers."
Linn used a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a 300mm lens and a 1.2x extender.See a photo of courting White IbisesSee a photo of White Ibises foraging in a flooded field
