|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This Cattle Egret is in breeding plumage. What a vast difference it makes to the plain white non breeding plumage. The rufous colour really stand out and along the chest is more hair like than feathers.|

May it is the law of nature that every species mix with it back ground as I see this bird too..
Good shot of the egret in breeding plumage. 600 + 1.4 gives you a really big lens, but the sharpness and plumage detail is quite impressive. Well composed and good exposure.
The breeding plumage is amazing.
This is a beauty. The lighting and details are wonderful. I agree the breeding plumage is lovely. tfs
