... well it is mostly white of course.

We were making our way back down the Austinville valley and came to a pond which I'm told is called.... wait for it..... (cover your ears if you're sensitive);)


I may upload a picture of it at some point.

Anyway... there was an Australian Ibis having a good old preen on the shore under some trees.

I'll keep it clean, D., and say only that this is
a wonderful shot of this Australian White Ipis.
A wonderful colourful capture you have of this preening beauty Delia. A brilliant shot, well done.
What a crazy name for a pond!

Meanwhile this is a lovely closeup of this Ibis. There seems to be so many B & W birds down under.

Like the shot and ... well ... location .. er name as well, LOL ... tfs, Delia ...
He is a beautiful bird, Delia. I like his colors. Tell ya what when we use to come home on the School Bus from Munich, Germany to Bad Tolz, Germany when I was in High School it was convenient there to stop on the side of the road. Back then it was in the seventies and when I was stationed there in the eighties in North Deutschland no one made a problem of it either. Now, who knows now.
