What a smorgasbord of photo ops. I especially like the shot of the single Ibis gliding in.

Thanks Dan...I'm enjoying my vacation so much my boss warned me, " I don't care how much you like it you can't stay!" When you work at a hospital they get it in their head that you're indispensable

Loads of nice photos of birds Jan. TFS. I'm a bit jealous of your opportunity to get this close to these birds. Our Ibis have disappeared for the winter.

Thanks for the kind words. I know you live in bird paradise...so they'll probably be back soon
