I love his hairstyle, it reminds me of Einstein.

The Cattle Egret is a white bird adorned with buff plumes in the breeding season. It nests in colonies, usually near bodies of water and often with other wading birds.

Hi Deon,

curious -but common- the posture of this Cattle Egret.A behaviour about which the scientific community is still discussing possible reasons....I find the photo interesting and pretty sharp.White is well handled and without excessive OEs, this despite a not easy light.Beautiful the natural colours.
