White Ibises forage in a flooded field in August 2008, a few days after Tropical Storm Fay passed over Naples, Florida.
My Hanh Dang of Midway City, California, found the adult and juvenile birds (Eudocimus albus)
near Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary
. "I got out of the car, lay flat on the grass by the roadside, and waited for them to walk by," she says. She used a hand-held Nikon D200 camera and a 70-200mm lens with a TC-14EII teleconverter.
