A White Bird Type of Day at the Pond

Just a few Ibis stopped by... (this isn't even half of them!)


..the Big Egret came by this morning and then in the evening again.

He went to the tiny grass island...

..and proceeded to preen his feathers.

... and then posed showing off the great job he did.

Then twice today I also came across the little egret... first he was wandering around someone else's apartment..

...I think he's looking for bugs in the bushes.

Then I found him right outside my sliding doors!

he's so cute !  I wish he could be tamed to eat from humans.. he doesn't seem very afraid of them.

Wow! Those are some gorgeous shots and moments! And so many birds! O_O And all white! Maybe they're trying to make up for the fact that there's no snow?

Happy new year, love! ^-^

That first picture is just GORGEOUS Pat!! I love it :D You should make a postcard out of it! We have an egret at work who walks around the hospital very sneakily and he will all of a sudden attack the lizards on the plants and eat them up!'s quite comical :p
