A Great Egret at an Ibis Convention


As dusk approaches, ibises gather to tell tall tales and gossip.
A great egret hired to provide the security eavesdrops.

I think I can hear them all the way up here and I'm shocked to hear the tales they are telling!

Stefan Jansson said...

I wonder if their stories are true.

Kate said...

Friendly gossip important extends beyond humans, too.

Nice reflections. I've often thought the ibises who've flown into Ocala from Naples were talking about you...they made sounds which sounded like "Remember that funny guy with the hats and that little black box? What was he all about?"

Seriously, this is true!

Nice one Jack.

Security guard is a great job for a spy!

Sylvia K said...

I go wild ducks. You push me a bit with these birds. Good show!

Lovely photograph. I wonder what it feels like to be the odd one out.

A wonderful, fun post Jack.

Took me a minute. I finally got it from the color of the bill.

Michelle said...

I think you explained this scene rather well. Excellent reflection.

Yes, there is always one who stands out in the crowd. The Ibises were too polite to tell the Egret that he was embarrassing himself.

Good eyes. At first all I saw was white feathers.

Kay said...

I'm imagining the egret is trying to fit in and hide his height.
Love this shot!

Margaret Adamson said...

Super fab capture Jack.. It's not easy keeping a low profile when you're that tall :)

Beautiful . Where I live I would have to go somewhere in another town who has a Zoo or wild display.

Now I can come here.
