I found this lovely photo of two white ibis on the Island Packet website — this is the newspaper that serves the Hilton Head area.  Loved this shot — when we were on vacation, we had several white ibis that liked to wade in the inlet marsh area near our condo when the tide was partially in, picking out little crabs and minnows and oysters if they got really lucky.  This photo brings back that salt air smell and the sound of the water lapping against the shore…and the calm of vacation.  Take that deep breath with me and then exhale.  Ahhhh.  Just what I needed with my coffee this morning.
