White Ibis

I love watching the White Ibis out at Brazos Bend State Park.  Photographing birds is all about being in the right place at the right time.

These pictures are of a few immature White Ibis. When they are younger they are brown and white and have a pink bill and legs. When they mature their appearance changes.

Photographing birds has always been something I truly enjoy and any chance I get to go out to Brazos Bend is an added plus.

Shadows from Harvey

Hurricane Harvey left behind scars for many people as well as nature.

Our favorite park finally reopened Tuesday it has been closed since the hurricane. Brazos Bend State Park in Needville, Texas it is located on the Brazos River and it floods.

There are lines across everything showing the watermarks of the flood waters. It is as if someone penciled in a shadow across everything.

The tree trunks appear darker on the lower area. The swamp brush even had its shadows. My favorite walking trail was now blemished by shadows.

We only saw four gators throughout our hike that was disappointing, to say the least.

It just takes time for things to return to normal again after something like this.

This was a park record for flooding they had even put up signs.
