AUSTRALIA 2013 #104

Town Beach, on Roebuck Bay is the closest and easily accessible beach in Broome as it just down the street from Chinatown.

As mentioned yesterday, the downside of this beach is that your feet sink in a muddy slimy mud.

The good thing about the mud is that birds are looking for food like this handsome Australian White Ibis.

The bird did not seem to mind my presence but took pleasure in making me go where I was sinking deeper and deeper. As a result I fell in the mud so had to give up following him/her.

Australian birds have a good sense of humour! Smile

Great shot of the Ibis Jean-Noel. That beak of his looks like some serious digging tool. Hope you did not drop your camera in the mud.!!!!GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
