Hi Jose,very nice and different way to take this egret...ehehe..a bit fun but beautiful,the pic looks a bit dark but is the best way to take the white plumage details of this bird,i like it!Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano.

Hello Jose

Another photo from you with a LOL effect !
héhéhé (laughing) just the cow being there
is enough and gives a country atmosphere
effect to the photo, great contrast with
the egret's bright color tones, TFS

Hello José,
Yes this shot reminds us that the Cattle Egret is dependent on grazing animals that flush up insects for it to feed on.
Here I think the darkness of the image is suitable: it emphasises the egret and puts the bullock more in the BG (farm animals are not encouraged on TN).
I like the composition with the buttercups helping to frame the picture.
Thanks for this original posting and enjoy your Sunday,

Hello Jose.
This is such a great shot of this beautiful bird in white plumage. I like the small yellow flowers and the partially silenced friend in the bg.
Thanks and have a great WE.
