It looks wide-eyed and surprised. You really do need to stop sneaking up on the wildlife Craig.

Love that right in your face capture ... looks like it is about to peck your camera, yet still looks sooo sweet! Beautifully captured.

It's always great when you can get this close to a bird. I think he's trying to tell you to back off, or he was looking for lunch. I love the header shot!

Nice Header! Says summer. That second picture surely shows the eye of the Ibis in all it's glory.

Is this a pretty cousin of the hadedas we get here in South Africa? Lovely shots!

Ibises are the companions of gods. Ibis escorts Thoth, the Egyptian god of wisdom and magic, who is the guardian of the Moon Gates in Heaven. The stride of the ibis was a measurement used in building the great temple of the Nile.
