White Ibis -- Posing at the NC Aquarium

You have to be unique, and different, and shine in your own way.
~ Lady Gaga

These are birds I don't see very often - usually just when I'm on vacation in NC.  This one posed for me at the NC Aquarium (Pine Knoll Shores)  I LOVE that curve of his bill.  This one was in the middle of preening but paused just a moment for me.

Oh he is very unusual, I've never seen one of these!
Nice of him to pause his preening to allow a photo be taken: He must have known it would help him on the path to fame!

A beautiful shot. I usually see fish at aquariums, not pretty birds like this!

Wonderful, Kerri. I'm seeing a lot of Glossy Ibis here on Cape Ann, but nothing like this.

Isn't he handsome? And how nice of him to pose for you like that! He must have sensed that you would take a wonderful and flattering photo. :-) His eye is a very pretty shade of blue, and that beak of his is definitely impressive.
