“Where Did Everybody Go?!?”
This ibis was among a small group fishing in the salt marsh when he suddenly looked up and realized he was alone. He hadn’t noticed that all his friends took off without saying anything.
So our lone ibis threw up his wings in surprise, took a bewildering look around, and jumped off to go look for his friends that had abandoned him.
He does look rather shocked 😉
He really does. And that’s so often the way it happens too… a bird is so focused on finding food it doesn’t realize it got left behind until way after it happened.
It did make me laugh 🙂 Thanks for sharing it!
poor guy or girl .. great pics !!!!! thanks phil ..
Thank you very much for looking and commenting and glad you liked the ibis!
How funny! It’s almost like a scene from the playground.
Oh yeah, kids will occasionally ‘lose’ a friend. Hey, it happens!
They came to ‘warm’ Bahrain! Great shots!
Thanks very much I appreciate you checking out the ibis photos!
He does have that “surprised” look!
He was surprised and a bit confused at first. How could his friends just leave him like that?!?
Awww, one must feel sorry for the fellow. Beautifully contrasted colours, Phil. I like his face!
They do have a face that is rather… unique. 🙂 Thanks Paula!
Gorgeous shots of a wonderfully expressive bird. I love those eyes–their color is somewhat startling.
Once they are full grown adults they develop that striking blue eye. Goes great with the red/orange bill! 🙂
Poor fellow – he looks so bewildered!
He really does, how could such a nice guy get left behind?! 🙂
Maybe that’s why he’s got those bug eyes! What a nice series, and a great capture of his mood!
Those blue eyes really do stand out. Well, especially against that bright reddish orange bill! 🙂
