I occasionally take a walk to this small pond after checking out the action on the big pond. The pond has a full tree canopy so the light is usually poor for photographs, but late in the day some dappled sun works through. And some days the walk rewards me with a bird.
This trip it was an adult White Ibis, slowing working his way back and forth, in and out of the patches of sunlight.
Then something startled him and he retreated to a spot above the water at the back of the pond, where he carefully checked the sky.
