“Hey Fellas Watch This!”

Our resident cranky pants spoonbill was getting along fine with a trio of white ibis recently when he apparently decided to show off. He suddenly lifts off and leap frogs over the ibis delivering a nice shower to  them as seen in photo #3. Far from being impressed however…the ibis simply went right back to feeding and mostly just ignored the spoonbill’s dramatic display. Perhaps they were happy to see Mr. Grump leave the area!

  1. I hope he comes back. Despite his expression in the first photo (wow, what “I am king here” bully look), I’d really miss him. Hope the ibis enjoyed the “rainfall”. 😉

    Look forward to your post every day. You capture the best shots of Mr. A and I look forward to your post everyday. I envy you to be able to this every day. We enjoy wild life and bird photography the best. What camera and lens do you shoot with?

  3. What a show-off! I think they were quite right to give him the “That don’t impress me much” treatment. Shana Twain would have been proud of their indifference. 🙂 Great shots, Phil.
