Watching You Watching Me by 

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/160s, f/5.6, ISO 200, focal length 33.6mm (35mm equivalent 196mm); AUTO setting

This white ibis and I were watching each other closely at Tuscawilla Park in Ocala, Florida, U.S.A. It was one of more than two dozen ibises hanging around the edge of the pond, and I was able to walk pretty close to them.

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.

    Love this perspective – you’re definitely seeing eye to eye!

  • Yup, we were having a stare-down! LOL I couldn’t get quite as close to the ibises as I did the wood stork. They moved away from me if I got too close.
