youngsters




The young ibis are abundant this summer. On this day they were feeding near the adolescent moorhens, who scurried around like miniature ostriches, making it tricky to take their photograph. The ibis affected boredom. One young dandy yawned repeatedly as if to say, " I do wish you would get on with it. I've got better things to do with my time than pose for the tourists."

I'm so jealous of how you are able to capture birds in photos. I always try but fail. In New Zealand, they have a bird called the tui. I was fascinated by it. It's black, with a white throat, and when it flies, the undersides of its wings are turquoise. Also, it has two voice boxes, so the sounds it makes are gorgeous. I tried to photograph it a zillion times, but it was just too fast for me.

Cool! I don't have much access to birds where I live right now. You're fortunate and you're good at taking pics of them.
Headed home to Ohio today!
