A Friendly Ibis


The other day on another blog, I saw photos of red ibises.  I had not seen such before.  This is a white ibis with red beak and legs.  It was quite friendly.  I think he/she just wanted me to get a good look.

A beautiful bird, if a bit odd.

Awwww....so glad he was friendly, Lowell. Beautiful capture!

If you had a beak and legs as pretty as this bird you'd probably want to step in front of a camera, too. (Not that you aren't a vision yourself...)

A great shot. Good thing she was friendly. There is so much wildlife and birdlife to see in Florida. Sign me up!

Matching beak and legs, very fashionable in the ibis world.

Great shot, Lowell, but where is the second leg? :)

I didn't realise there were so many different types of Ibis Lowell.. the Ibis we see here in Perth are white with black beaks and legs, not so gloriously red as yours are here!
