Sacred Ibis Sunrise

I woke up early. It was a trick of the bowel, but I was awake. Just over the building on front of where we live I could see the silver lining of what looked to be a spectacular sunrise. I thought of running out of the door to make a photograph but that little voice said 'You will miss it.' 

So I picked up my bag and ran out the door. Quietly of course, careful not to wake my beautiful pregnant wife. I was driving when I saw the moment which would have made a great photograph. Henri Cartier-Bresson and the decisive moment crossed my mind, but since I was up...

I was just about to pack it in when this flock of sacred ibis appeared. And vanished into the morning just as quickly. I managed to squeeze 3 frames and it was over. A great way to start the day.
