Walk this Way





I never know what will be out my front door on any given day. Today I saw an Ibis feeding just a few feet away. Of course you know, I ran back inside to get my camera. They feed on insects and worms in yards or small fish or mollusk in the water.



When I rounded my car, I saw the whole flock. They do like to go in groups, but at times they separate. Their long slender legs, long beaks and necks make them appear graceful, much like a swan. Until..
they start to fly away. Then it's all teenage awkwardness. Please ignore the dark streak in the pictures-that's just a palm frond in my way. I hurried to take the shot before they flew away. Ha, or maybe I just didn't notice it at all because of the birds.

"Therefore, be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise." Ephesians 6:15

Wonder what else I've done that I just didn't take the time to notice. ooops...

Thank goodness, the Lord gives us second chances, and third and fourth, and...

I don't know that I've seen Ibises in person! How cool.

I'm so grateful for all the chances the Lord gives me, too.

Yep, we get all kinds of critters. Most of them are okay. I love Florida with all the water and its climate. Y'all come visit sometime!

The Ibis is quite a bird. T^hey sometimes look menacing with their long beaks - Dave

I love these pics. I don't see pretty birds like this...just feral hogs. (shivers)

It's easy not to notice our mistakes. I just pray God will point them out to me so I can correct them.
I can do all things through Christ, who strengthen me. (Philippians 4:13)
Have a wonderful day love the pictures and the story!
