[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends in TN,

This picture was taken during new year's eve. A flock of Bubulcus ibis was feeding by the coastline.

The Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis) is a cosmopolitan species of heron (family Ardeidae) found in the tropics, subtropics and warm temperate zones. It is the only member of the monotypic genus Bubulcus, although some authorities regard its two subspecies as full species, the Western Cattle Egret and the Eastern Cattle Egret. Despite the similarities in plumage to the egrets of the genus Egretta, it is more closely related to the herons of Ardea. Originally native to parts of Asia, Africa and Europe, it has undergone a rapid expansion in its distribution and successfully colonised much of the rest of the world.

Thanks for viewing!

Hi Jusni.
You have pictured a very cute scene. I like horizon cropping of the image and details of the entire of the image. Ship on the BG is a charm bonus of the shot. My kind wishes and TFS.

Beautiful scene with interesting framing and good composition. In your photo there are at least two species of herons but none Bubulcus ibis for sure!
