An Australian White Ibis sighted at my "Golden Pond"
looking quite glamorous in the morning sunlight
with it's ruffled plumage

Great photo. I saw them in the wild for the first time when I was in Australia. It was such a thrill for me.

I love the "ruffled feathers" and the reflections in the second photo are just beautiful.

Wow. It made me giggle though. To me it looks like a bird pretending to be a sheep, as we have white sheep with black faces here.

Haha! All puffed up with nowhere to go! Fabulous shot Dianne, your 'Golden Pond' images are always delightful.

A gorgeous White Ibis Diane! And those lotus flowers in the header are beautiful too!

Jack said...

That looks like a cross between a normal white ibis from Florida and a wood stork (with its mottled neck and head). A fun discovery.

Joe said...

Both photos are terrific Dianne. I can see the quiver in the Ibis feathers and the light caught in the second shot is wonderful. Congrats to you.
