From My Front Porch






Through the living room window I saw a flock of Ibis land and start eating at our front yard buffet....
Ibis are common here and in our yard almost daily, I only have 4 post on them and rarely aim the camera at them. Click HERE for my favorite post on them
 

stepping quietly on the front porch I snapped a few shots of them, then noticed the staghorn and rose moss BEGGING me to take their photo.


As I turned to go in the house the street scene, seen through a bush was begging to. It's the little things in life that matter...

Great shots of the ibis. It has an interesting look. I was thinking how satisfying it must be to get regular shadow shots because of your sunny climate. Snapping is good fun and there's always something to notice and capture.

Hello Sandra, I love the Ibis and your pretty plants. It is wonderful to enjoy the little things in life. Have a happy day!

Who would have thought a flock of ibis would lead to all that? Of course, I'd fall over in shock to see even an ibis in front of my house!!

Best,
Bonnie

Love it!! Now that's something you'd never see land in our front yard! Lol. How cool is that, Sandra! This country is just so huge with so much variety!

You see a photograph every where you look. How special the ibis chose your yard to snack in.

WOW! On your front lawn? I think you are trying to make me feel jealous...and it worked!

I do miss seeing Ibis in my yard and neighborhood. Your Staghorn is gorgeous! Do you ever find snakes in it? Is that your Moss Rose? I still haven't bought any. I need to soon, they're one of my favorites!
It's showing 100 for the high next week..Sunday through Wednesday!! It's not as humid as Orlando which is good. :)

How can you not take a gazillion pictures of the Ibis...I know, you get used to them. I am going to see your favorite post after this.

But will say, it is the little things in life...and I will say I love, I mean I really love that rose moss shot!

Oh man I'd be photographing those Ibis all day long.
Your Staghorn plant is super cool and what a pretty Moss Ross.
I enjoyed all your wonderful photos here today.

I'd be hunting those Ibises with my camera all the time... But then of course to me they are 'rare' - as I've never seen one at all (IRL)!
