I spent a few hours walking around Lake Lilydale and photographing birds and occasionally people.
I remember the excitement and fun in the taking of this photo. The ibis were walking in the shallows, following each other, but then the one in front did a U-turn and walked towards its companion. I knew what was about to happen and I was ready for this cheeky photo.One chance in a million.

Ha! Ha! Klaudio, this looks more like two bodies are better then one!
I know how difficult it can be to photograph birds. They are the least co-operative models. You showed great patience and skill to capture this shot, which is humorous but still shows excellent textural clarity.
Have a great day,

One chance in a million and so well used! :) This "one head two creatures" image really made me smile!

A very funny picture and another good example of how a good picture is a matter of a very short moment. I guess that this good motive had disappeared a fraction of a second later.

like this one very much! It is not only very good quality picture but also has some funny accent. The heads of two birds seen from this POV look like one but with two beaks and you seized the moment perfectly in your lens. Nice framing and classic composition.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your evening

I like the simplicity and effectiveness of the composition, with two layers, well distributed, and what looks like a two head bird. Good work, congratulations!

skoro sam siguran da nisi imao nameru da ovo snimiš, ali to ništa ne umanjuje vrednost fotografije.

Klaudio, I totally agree with you...and your picture shows that those birds agree too..
a very beautiful and natural capture!!
regarding my last post the Dream House..
I know exactly what you mean and I know well the consequences of corruption in my country but this house is a house of friends and the land is theirs for 4 generations. They own also all the surrounding land and their building this beautiful house there it has nothing to do with politicians or being very rich people..It is a simple traditional and not an expensive house...
thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts, appreciated!!

It is just a photo for GEO or National Geographic, for example! Great timing shot! Good result of the few hours walking ;) My congratulations!
Best wishes from Russia!

This fortuitous positioning creates almost the impression of a facing three-cornered hat over the two heads!
Unobtrusive backdrop shows all the best.
Many compliments to your 'illico presto' reflex!

What a great shot here! You took it on the right moment. I like the composition and effect you got with them moving in opposite directions! A very original photo!
