Here's my Shadow Shot(s) Sunday #91
The Australian White Ibis is a wading bird of the ibis family Threskiornithidae, also known as the "Sheep bird" and it is widespread across much of Australia. It has a predominantly white plumage with a bare, black head, long downcurved bill and black legs. Historically rare in urban areas, the Australian White Ibis has immigrated to urban areas of the east coast in increasing numbers since the late 1970s; it is now commonly seen in Wollongong, Sydney, the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Townsville. Debate continues on whether to consider it a pest or vulnerable species. Populations have disappeared from natural breeding areas such as the Macquarie Marshes in northwestern New South Wales. Despite this, the species has been culled in parts of Sydney due to their smell and at times obtrusive nature [excerpt from Wikipedia]
Today celebrates Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year. "Happy Valentine's Day & Gung Hoi Fat Choi" squawked the smelly obtrusive ibis. He did. I'm quite sure of it. I wanted to work the V-Day & CNY theme into my shadow shots today. And that's the best I could do. So lucky to have stumbled upon a talking ibis.
It's all about hearts. Red ones specifically. If interested in joining in head over to this post for all the details. Anna asks participants to state one thing they love with their submitted photos. My answer is: Weekends!
