What a glorious day this trek and again fascinated by our blue eyed friend the WHITE IBIS. This wading bird will be spotted immediately by his long curved orange beak! They eat insects and I can see them scooping up little fish on the shoreline. I just ADORE these birds! It's their blue blue eye!

Feel free and click on
my blog where you can spy another head shot of this wading wetland bird.

I love this photo of a blue-eyed bird. Excellent composition, sharpness and colors. TFS

Hi Brenda,
beautiful view of this bird. Excellent portrait. Nice natural colours. Perfect sharpness and details. I like the atmosphere.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi brenda!
Beautifully captured momemt; water droplets dripping down the beak are very clear. I think you have added some extra back-light to this image. This has highlighted the bird very nicely but created a slight dark halo around the neck. Still, its a beautiful composition overall. TFS

Hello Brenda.
What a neat image of this unique looking bird. Love it's super long bill and the way the water droplets are falling from it. Love the close-up of it's facial features and the excellent eye contact.
Well done Brenda!!!

I like this shot! The dripping water makes it.
Nice clear eye! Cool shot.
TFS, Ronny
