    1. It's rare to see them in a tree here too they are usually grazing in the grassy wetlands. I was thrilled to get a tree shot.

  3. Truly spectacular! Loving the the almost monochrome feel to the second shot. #mysundayphoto

    1. I did try adding a bit of fill light and highlights but I didn't like how it removed the contrast between the two shots so I undid the changes and put it up as is. I'm glad you like it too :o)

    1. These Ibis hang out in some local wetlands, we're a fair way from the coast but I'm sure they are by the beach too. I'll be linking up tomorrow!

    1. Such a rare opportunity too, we've been walking at this spot for years and it's the first time I've seen them hanging out in that tree.

    1. Oh, and I want to say a big thank you for your tip about gluing the lace to the veil. I might just try that. :)

    2. Thanks. I agree leafless branches are very srtiking.

    3. I certainly hope the veil works out for you and your daughter! I think it was Pierced Wonderings who mentioned the glue though. I suggested gelatin dipping to stiffen the organza. I wish I could come and help :o)
