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. What a fantastic shot of the Australian White Ibis in the second-last image. Perfect light to show off its ruffled wet(?) feather and open beak. Perfect timing to press the shutter button, Cindy ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Plenty of birds around with the low urban sounds and activity in lockdown. Hope we open our international borders one day so you can visit Oz again ๐Ÿ™‚ Might be years before the borders are open in Victoria though.

        • Strange, strange days. I am glad I got in when I did. The Holler just had the highest temperatures ever recorded and of course we lost power and the fires are starting up. Hard to imagine anyone not hearing the warning bells chiming…

          • Our bushfires have started up north too, Cindy and it’s only the start of Spring.

            Many homeless folk from the bushfires early this year still haven’t got back to normal and are living in temporary accommodation or sheds etc. Now with the lockdown, it will take even longer to recover.

            • I am so sorry your fires have started again. Thinking of people who lost everything thing facing fire again is just so incredibly sad. The impact of fire and covid are pretty horrendous. Evacuated people moved to group shelters are vulnerable to covid on top of losing their homes. We have 40 fires burning now in California, the sky is dark all day.

  2. Ah, the iconic bin chickens of Sydney! They apparently struggled for food during the first lot of Covid restrictions in Sydney. They are amazing birds and you capture them so beautifully. I enjoyed your little political dig. ๐Ÿ˜€
