Whilst I was fruitlessly trying to photograph flying dragonflies, this Ibis landed on the railing, quite close to me. I like that you can see such good detail in its head and beak. They always look as old as time.

So…I just logged into WordPress to find that my spam filter had filtered out 11 spam comments. These are of course deleted.
What do these people think I’m going to do??
Also, my mistake, the White-cheeked Heron doesn’t exist. It’s a White-faced heron. Silly me 🙂
And since this is a photo blog, have a photo: St Stephens at night. (Newtown, NSW, Australia)
I was down at Sydney Park last Sunday. I had my camera with me but wasn’t expecting to actually take any photos.
Nonetheless, a young White-Faced Heron was on the scene, so the camera came out.
It was fishing along the margins of one of the ponds, there.
The plastic fencing in the background was put up to keep dogs out of the ponds, because there has been the occasional killing of bird-life there.
The little fellow was finding lots of little meals in the form of small fish. We must have had more rain than I realised because the water was quite a bit higher than I expected.
See it in action. It’s a quick little hunter – the fish didn’t stand a chance.
I haven’t been very photographic of late. Shan’t go into it. Instead, here’s a few pics.
Some lovely clouds…
Neighbouring cat that seemed very worried by my existence…
