Nearly Wordless Wednesday: The Ibis Looks at You

This is a juvenile white ibis. The curved beak is great for poking into marsh mud and shallow water for crayfish and other delights.

What an extraordinary looking creature. His head looks tiny.
Another brilliant photograph Penny.
Thanks, Ray! This bird's beak is pretty substantial, so I guess the head is small to compensate. It is an interesting, and rather large, creature. I had never see one in this particular location before. It posed for me nicely!
