White Ibis on St Pete Beach

When we were in St Pete Beach in June I saw a White Ibis on the beach.
This was the first time I have ever seen a White Ibis on the beach there. So I was snapping away.
Then Mason noticed his Granny was paying attention to something other than him.
And off he went to investigate. Mason looks like he is ready to fly. I laugh at this picture everytime I look at it.
He couldn't catch him (mainly because we wouldn't let him),
so he is headed back to the water.
I was really surprised how much Mason liked the sand and the ocean. My children were not crazy about the sand at his age. Mason wore us out before he was tired of it, everytime we took him to the beach. Lindsey did a great job of keeping the sunscreen on him and you can barely tell he has gotten any sun.

The picture of Mason going after the ibis is priceless, but the last picture is absolutely adorable. The pictures of the ibis are also very good!

Great shots of the Ibis! Her pink legs and beak really stand out and she doesn't seem too concerned with you being there.
The picture of Mason chasing it is precious. I'd frame it with that poem about -'giving our children wings.'
