African sacred ibis (Threskiornis aethiopicus) at the lake shore standing near some elephant dung, Lake Ndutu, Tanzania. These birds were venerated and often mummified by Ancient Egyptians as a symbol of the god Thoth, who was often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis. Troth had many roles in Egyptian mythology, including being the inventor of almost everything (busy guy)
Nice capture. Your caption helped call to mind all the images I've seen of Egyptian hieroglyphs and other artwork that featured stylized ibises. Somehow I had never made the connection between those depictions and the actual ibis.
