Sometimes, if you go out early in the morning when the sun has just risen, you can see and hear nature in a way that it does not present itself later in the day. This morning was cool, breezy, and I found one of those unexpected treasures.
Two magnificant white ibis were standing on the telephone wires in the corner of the back yard, surveying the neighborhood. Now ibis are not really an unusual sight in Florida. In fact a flock of them, brown and white, feed on my front yard frequently. Unlike some of our neighbors who have picture-perfect manicured green lawns, ours has bugs! We don't often use chemicals on our lawn. Only in flea season. So the ibis, and other birds, visit us to dig for beetles and worms, and other such yummy creatures. But I seldom see them perched high. I think these two were deciding which bug-infested natural yard to visit today. Thanks Mr. & Mrs. Ibis, for making my morning pleasant!
