He's so beautiful.I especially love the first shot!Have a great sunday.
he is just so beautiful, and i love that bokeh effect in the last few.. he looks like he thinks he is the king of the world
These are GORGEOUS!
Good morning Tex I just have to say yeah Laura for being first today:)Love the pics that is a very unusual bird I love seeing the ones that share your pond. Have a great Sunday. Hug B
Some people think that Ibis look like vultures, but I really like them with their curved, strong, serviceable beaks. Nice shots Theresa.
He appears to be posing for you. :) What a cutie. :)
Hi T!!Lovely pics again. THose from the pond with the heron is great. Is there always water in it or will it dry in hot summers?Your horses are real beautys...they have a great life at yours.The ibis looks funny...dont think I´ve seen one here..
mooie vogel hier zie je hem heel zelden,maar bij jou des te meer.
These are all so beautiful... love the ones on the 'balance beam'
Wow!!!!! you sure get interesting birds in your neck of the woods, great pictures.....Thanks for sharing these amazing photos with us.....love it.....Blessings Francine.
Uwielbiam te ptaki i ich zakrzywiony dziób. Pozdrawiam.I love these birds and their curved beak. Yours.
That bill looks like it could do some serious damage.
I like your juvenile Ibis! They are cool looking. Great shots! Have a happy Sunday!
Such an unusual bird.Love seeing them here.
I wonder if that beak gets in the way at all. He is a beauty and looks to be growing up a bit. Looks like a teenager to me! :-)
Lovely! For no clear reason I simply adore ibises with their long necks and curvy beaks.
I'm always amazed at the number of birds you have at your pond. We have a large pond that emanates from a spring and we occasionally have a heron or two. Maybe if I got down there more often I'd see birds like this. But it's a quite a trek so I'm always putting it off!
I'm hoping this beauty will become the subject of one of your art pieces one day. Love them!
So nice to see "the kids" grow up! LOL!...:)JP
Yikes those beaks again. Great pix as ever. Have a super Sunday.Best wishes Molly
What a great set of legs! :-)
The complexity of their feathers never ceases to amaze me, a work of art!
Your shots of this amazing bird are so lovely! Cannot get over that you have so many great birds right at your fingertips!
Something Prancingly Majestic about that bird lad!
A comment from DJan.. was what i was going to ask. I wonder if the beak gets in his way!He really is a beauty.great shots.happy sunday Texval
Jealous jealous jealous!! LOL. Beautiful shots, and how I'd love to see one of these beauties!
Pure grace. I don't know why, but the word Ibis always makes me hear Elmer Fudd in my head. LOL! blessings ~ tanna
Busy guy back and forth and then perched up high. Swagger, swagger like Mick Jagger.
I especially love the middle series where he looks like he's practicing a balance beam routine :-)
With those long legs, "struttin" across that log...you would think it was a model runway...
what a beauty of a bird. Nicely captured.
He's darling Tex! Your pictures of him walking are just how I would imagine a baby Ibis walking.. :) Those long legs and knobby knees are still learning!
These are beautiful captures T! Headed to Naples, Florida this month. Hope I see some exotic birds to snap.
P.S. It always cracks me up when one of your readers is overjoyed to be the first commenter or at least in the top 10, LOL! Been there, felt the same way!
Many ibis there through your land :))Good photos and have a good Sunday.a kiss.
I love that graceful bill! You also have some great bokeh in these photos!
Very nice pictures. I like the first take.Happy Sunday.
Quite beautiful! I love the Ibis.
He is awesome. How long did he stay around? I love these shots.
Wow, one handsome looking bird and what a beak/bill! lovely photos. x
Fun photos. Hope you have a great day.
Great captures of the beautiful bird.Happy New Year.Costas

He's a beauty!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
What a stunning bird to see...
Thats a strange one....... i like these shots.Greetings, Joop
Long bill, long legs! I love it!!
That's okay, you can share all the Ibis you want, I like seeing him and that long, long bill! :)
Beautiful bird taking one step at a time.
Ibis in love with you.
you really, really do have the best birds...
oohhh he's a struter,i'm special and i know it!!cute feeties!!
Beautiful, Theresa... I love the little Ibis.. Sometimes the juvies are easier to photograph than their parents!!!!!Hugs,Betsy
Just like a tightrope walker the way he puts one foot in front of the other. :)
have I mentioned how jealous I am of your pond and your birds? I can't believe you have ibis up there.
Such an exotic-looking bird! These are terrific shots!
They are really such cool looking birds with those curved bills.
It must be hard for them at first, to judge where their food is with that long curved beak.
Beautiful series of shots!
Wonderful series!I started a new blog, same old crap, different day. lolhttp://broanenigk.wordpress.com/
Love the bokeh behind the shots, as well as this handsome fellow!
I get the sense that you & he are friends & companions, hanging out together! That is truly magical!
He's even got that expression of practiced boredom so typical of an adolescent!
Beautiful shots of a gorgeous bird
Sometimes the beak looks unbalanced and then sometimes it looks perfectly balanced. In any case - he is wonderful.
No wonder you paint birds.
Such an unusual-looking bird. Great shots, Theresa.
Very cool! I'd love to see one in person,
great shots! I was taking a few snapshots of a juvi yesterday! I love their coloring.
Thats a stunning bird on the log, peter
What an interesting young bird to watch. From Findlay.
T, very pretty! Great shots! Looks like it is working the balance beam in middle shots!
Dearest Theresa,Those juveniles are always so cute to watch. They will grow up fast and learn about danger. Hugs to you,Mariette
Hello,Very great shots!! Wonderful to see this special Ibis in the tree.Many greetings,Marco
Such handsome pictures. He is a beautiful bird.
I'd like to see one of those in person. Their bill is very cool! I like the log crossing and that dead tree is a great perch! It gets used a lot.
He is awesome! I am always amazed by your variety of visitors, and beautiful shots!
Happy New Year T! Glad our paths crossed in this bloggy land, I always enjoy your comments!
Oh fun...I gotta ask tho, was the set up of the images intentional? After I viewed each ibis, I skimmed through it again and quite quickly the 2nd time...there for a few of the images, scrolling fast, it looks like the ibis is moving!!!! Great job.And thanks for linking up this week. Much appreciated
I love these everywhere I see them. You did a great job following her, a did a nice sequence.
Sooo nice to have this cool looking bird in the garden! great photos!!
Oh that looks like he is dancing along that log :))
He is so cute Theresa,I have never ever seen ibis in my life ;(Have a nice weekend to you
They are like a skinny chicken :-)
Looks like he's a handsome young strutter! :)
Fabulous as always! :)xoxo
You caught that guy doing a lot of stuff. He's pretty good at walking along a log.
Each of these could be wonderful watercolours, they are really so pretty...love the subtle colours...really very nice! Happy week my sweet friend~
How I would love to see a big pretty bird like that in my area!Wonderful pictures.Jo, Stella and Zkhat
Your pond is certainly a magnet for fabulous wildlife. Love the young Ibis! Terrific photographs, Theresa!
Love those ibis!,,
Okay, I'm just a wee bit jealous! Not really, I'm happy for ya. :) These are so awesome. So many different poses. Love his orange beak, and his concentration as he's walking along the log. So freakin' cool!
I feel like I just hung out with him...how cool! I like him walking on the log! Awesome photos!
Bet he can talk deep breaths.
Although I've never seen an ibis, other than in photographs, I always know how to recognize one...that wonderful long curved bill. I always think of fantasy or prehistoric birds when I see one.

These "juveniles" look to be having a lovely day. I cannot get over how many different birds you are seeing in your neck f the world. it really is an amazing collection you have shared this year. Like the number 1 shot the best. genie
I love this dorky looking bird!
You have got a wonderful photo subject, love your captures.
We've got those too! I love ibises.Your pictures are so good.
The Ibis, ~~a very curious bird~~blessum'
That beak is made for spearing.
Beautiful photo series showing - wish you a good start to the new week :) Hanne Bente
Such a strange looking beak they have! Love the shots!
These are some really good pics. I like the ibis.
Wonderful series on the ibis! great shots
This guy is great, but what an awkward beak. I think I could sit and watch him for hours. (Or is it a her?)
Geeze, Theresa....You keep coming up with the greatest photos. I am finally getting used to the "juvenile" and "adult" terminology. Buddy came in with gobs of mew seed and food for my squirrels. We have bought a variety of feeders and food in hope to start attracting more different species. Don't think we will be having any ibis visitors, but your surely is handsome. genie
Love those one-foot-in-the-air shots. Neat looking bird!
Oh, he's a cool bird! Nice captures.
I love his curved beak. He seems very happy at your pond!
terrific captures!you have the prettiest of birds they are in your area!
I love these!! Your Ibis are so different to ours and so much nicer to look at. I love the way he's proudly standing tall on that high branch!
