Glossy Ibis Laughing! Probably at Me!

He's getting a teeny bit closer every time I see him! He is taunting me with his beauty, and it's so much fun! From a distance these birds often just look dark brown and black. If he would just get 5 feet closer, it would make a huge difference in clarity, but I still love it because of his expression, and that it's better than previous posts. The issue isn't just the distance, it's the LIGHT! You have to be close, and on the sun side, and then he has to move just so, for all the colors to glow! It's really amazing to see, and I'm getting closer to that pinnacle colorful moment. I'm always trying to improve. This is cropped and sharpened a bit. Thanks for viewing!
