Well I Have a Bird Too

… and it’s a white-faced ibis.

I don’t know exactly how or why I landed on a grouping of photos from a visit with birds since this is back in my 2015 folder, but I did*. Funny, since we were just up at Stellar Gallery to attend the reception that featured David Hoffman and Dan’s images of birds. Believe me, their work is amazing and I don’t pretend to be a photographer of birds. I still like this guy, though. So I’m sharing it. Because I can.

*And I just remembered how I landed in 2015: I was actually going to a flower image that needed some more work done. So back I go to the folder …

Filoli’s Percy

I took a nice little visit to Filoli today, and hit it at a good time: great cloud cover but no rain and very little breeze until I was nearing time to leave.

Percy greeted visitors today just as he did the last time I came. He was right by the visitor’s center and nearly impossible, really, to miss. Smart move, you show-off! Clearly he was ready for his close-up.

I had a visit with a guy who really loves to show off today. He seems to romance any female who walks by.

He is one proud guy.
