ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR

I took a boat trip out to Albany’s Green Island to photograph its inhabitants. The Straw-necked Ibis had been discovered breeding on the island for the first time. I captured this particular bird as it headed towards the nesting side of the island with vegetation clasped in its bill.
