Perhaps the metallic bird would be a more apt description for the White-Faced Ibis.
And I know that it is only a physical characteristic of its bill, but it always appears to be smiling. Maybe it's a little knowing smile of a secret being shared, i.e. it's true beauty. :)
These ibises were secure enough in their surroundings to allow for some close-ups, including grooming (Photo #1 through to Photo #4). Then it was time for some stand-up stretches & shakes (Photo #5 & Photo #6).
And then there was a stretch of wings, which I assume included some sun bathing, which, once again, showed off those magnificent colours (Photo # 7).
A final shot is a close up of the second ibis to show off those ruby red eyes. (Photo #8)
