… 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 …
Plegadis chihi, 1.1.15
My husband Dan and our friend David Hoffman have an upcoming show about birds. You can read more here.
Meanwhile, here is my little bird photo for today. I don’t make images quite like theirs, but still … birds!

… again … as I’m still going through a certain folder. I have reached 2017, which means I’m nearing the end of that folder. This image reminds me of a sort of silouette-ish close-to-sepia-toned picture my mom had on her family room wall. I could kick myself for not taking it when we were cleaning out her house: ah, hindsight!

This is another from our New Year’s Day visit with the birds.

I guess I need to start a new category called Surprises on Walks because they certainly do happen!
This guy was just sitting on a front yard fence nearby. I nearly always look down … I’m glad I thought to hold my head up for a moment!
The Turkey on the Fence, 10.23.17
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.
