Just Passing By
Earlier this week I looked up just in time to see this white ibis come flying in from back in the salt marsh. I managed to click off one frame and one frame only, and this was it. Looking at the photo later I was taken by the elegant simplicity of the scene, combined with the peculiar yet extraordinary look of the bird. With that impossible long curved orange bill, bright blue eyes, and large white wings with black tips, the ibis is indeed a wonder of nature.
I often see ibis quietly going about their daily business but it’s worthwhile I feel to stop occasionally and take a moment to notice and enjoy the unique and interesting wildlife that can be found in nature.
