White Ibis, Late Afternoon Feeding

The sun was low in the sky and cast a bright light on a small group of feeding White Ibis.

A few swamp sunflowers decorated their feeding area.

Ibis stay amazingly clean as they probe the mud.

Only his beak showed any sign of the local conditions.

  1. Gorgeous birds and they shine so bright against the dark background.

    Egypt’s queen
    shines white, still in the water
    day’s bright moon.

  2. Question: could I please use that last image for a haiga (haiku with image) (with your attribution of course) for a contest I’m entering?

    1. Yes, you may use the White Ibis image, msjadeli. Thank you for asking.

      I occasionally come up with a haiku, but haiga was not something I was familiar with. I’d be interested to see it when you are finished.
