Glossy Ibis

Glossy Ibis, Black Point Wildlife Drive, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Titusville, Florida, USA. The other Florida Ibis. This year at least there were many more Glossy than White Ibis. I saw flocks of a hundred or more in flight, and great numbers of birds feeding in the ponds and pools. The Glossy and White-faced Ibis have similar plumage…with those iridescent highlights of green and red. I always think of stained glass when I see them. This bird was on the back side of the loop, feeding almost too close to photograph at full zoom. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos.
