Watery Wednesday ~ 3 & Bird Photography Weekly 13

I don't like doing one for two's but this time there is
no help for it, the garden calls, the weeds are fast
approaching my knees, need to top up my bulb pots,
plant Pansies for the winter and a replacement for
one of my Roses before it rains...



Wetlands at Yeppoon, Queensland, Australia



Ibis and various Egrets abound



Now, with the Ibis, I fly into the garden!

  9. You are so funny, I LOL so loud aboutt your cow pat comment. My grandpa was worst, in his misinformed knowledge, he told us that the Cow was the Hindu God, and the Hindus dry the cow pats and sprinkle them into their soup like we do with pepper. Grandpa is long gone to the clouds, we ahve no way to verify his "true story." But as adults, we his grand children still LOL when we think of it.

    I was living in a university in Singapore. There were a lot of egrets. I miss them here, but my room in school is known as Egret room. Isn't it funny?


    P/s your Autumn colours are wonderful.

  19. It is massive to see large birds in so many numbers.
    It is ok to make two in one - sometimes we do have more thing to do like you write, and from time to time there are lot to do in the family or garden,

    Good luck with your garden work,

  30. I do like Ibis with their snowy white feathers and black beak and also the iridescent ones too, unfortunately we don't have them in NZ.

  31. Are those Scared Ibis? They look like it, I am intrigued because I only ever saw them in Africa.
