Tread Lightly

Crazy Ibis IMG_1181

Oviedo, FL: On most mornings these interesting creatures can be found tip-toeing through the little duck pond. Usually traveling in flocks, Ibis work very hard at digging up their breakfast. When I walked slowly up to them they stood at attention and walked quickly away, pretending like they hadn’t seen me, they just suddenly had somewhere important to go. Down about six feet. However, as they got used to my presence, I was moving slowly and quietly, they began to come back.

Because they walk so slowly and deliberately the water is barely disturbed making for some lovely reflective photos.
