Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    They are such pretty birds.. nice capture Dot!!! love those long pink beaks.. :)))))

  • Thank you, Cookie! When we first moved here I couldn’t tell an ibis from an egret. I finally realized the ibis was the one with the curved beak. Guess it takes time to become a Floridian. LOL

    You made this Ibis a star!!!! They are not the prettiest of birds but You certainly made this lucky one shine!!!!

  • Gotta disagree, Noble. I think they are beautiful! Then again, I’m from the northeast and never saw these before moving to Florida, so they really intrigue me. LOL Thanks for your kind comment!
