Canon 550D, southern bald ibis, taken at Houston Zoo, Texas, USA. Very odd looking birds with the red cap and black feathers cloaked about their shoulders, very bright reds make for an interesting contrast. Enhanced and textured with PSP3.

Truly a gorgeous bird – what colors and lenth of bill. The top red part reminds me of a bad toupe a man might wear – also the black mark on face reminds me of a spider. But this is truly a gorgeous eye popping photo.
very interesting thing nature has done with this bird, thanks barbie
Jim,Wonderfully done image!
What a amazing shot, Jim! And what an unusual looking bird….I have never seen anything quite like it!
thanks karen, ibis’s in general are rather odd looking, this one in particular because of the red cap and beak
Just when I think I’ve seen the strangest bird species….wonderful image, he or she is gorgeous and so very strange! Love it.
