I thought I’d try to emulate Becky’s theme of pink photo this morning, but add a touch of Johannesburg to the mix.
As dusk arrives, the somewhat forlorn cry of the Hadeda Ibis is an ever familiar feature of many a South African suburb.
These large birds will spend the day grazing in urban parks, golf courses and even larger gardens if there is enough grass. But come sunset they all fly home – wherever their home is – to roost.
In this shot, a pair of Ibis are silhouetted against the evening sky, as pink clouds move sedately westward.
