A warm-weather visitor to Delmarva, the Glossy Ibis is thought to have immigrated naturally to South America from Africa in the 19th century and they spread to North America. In the right light it is easy to see why they are named glossy.
10/1: I'm mostly in love with the texture of this insect's carapace. It's kept from being an overbearing block of color by the small winding lines running through it, and of course the massive straight ones running down the length of it. Additionally, it's a very rich orange. It pleases my cones and rods.
Scarlet Macaw. the one large macaw that has no feathers on its "leather," the white area around the eyes. And there is NO redder than the scarlet. Would love to have one, as they are gentle, playful, very trainable, and wonderful companion birds.
