I just love this shot. It is totally vital.

This was a lucky shot. I finished a meeting in Varennes about 15h45 and rather than fight traffic, decided to try to get to Baie du Febvre before sunset. Arriving with about 15 minutes to spare, the Ibis stayed in the shade until just before the sun went below the horizon. A lucky twist of the head and body allowed the setting sun to bring out the highlights with just a bit of shadow on the neck. By lying on the roadside, with the setting sun about 30 degrees to my left, I was able to narrow down the aperture enough to get the whole body in focus with no close background - that is what produced the 3D type effect.

Great image. I just love the colours in its feathers.
