Narcissus in Sydney~

We have one in Washington.

I wasn’t expecting to see one in Sydney.

Thankfully, he didn’t seem political,

mostly just optical,

and clearly in love with the view!

He got quite ruffled up, and vociferously tweeted,

when a photographer disrupted his adored self reflection!

Cheers to you from the vainglorious Ibis in Oz~

  1. Cela me rappel le poème l’ibis de Pierre Coran…
    Sorry I do not find any translation of it but here is in French :

    Un ibis avait un bec
    Comme le sabre d’un cheik.
    Aussi, notre volatile,
    Au mépris des crocodiles,
    Becquetait, becquetait-il,
    Des serpents le long du Nil,
    Becqueta, becqueta tant
    Qu’il mourut en becquetant.
    Dans le ventre de l’ibis,
    On trouva deux tournevis, 
    Deux tubes de dentifrice,
    Deux épingles à nourrice, 
    Deux étoiles de police, 
    Et deux balles de tennis.
    Puisqu’il trouvait fabuleux, 
    De becqueter tout par deux, 
    De Port-Saïd à Tunis,
    On l’appelait l’ibis bis.
