|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 monotonic 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 colonized much of the rest of the world.|
The Cattle Egret is a stocky heron with a 88–96 cm (35–38 in) wingspan; it is 46–56 centimetres (18–22 in) long and weighs 270–512 grams

Hi George,beautiful in-flight capture whit the best wings position and details,for me the pic need a bit of brightness,but is very very good too.Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
Hello George, it`s a super sharp shot of the egret in flight,no mean feat,in a nice vibrant composition.
There is a blue cast which could probably be sorted out in the blue channel of curves.
Best regards Les.
This one is full of mystery; the light...the framing ... the EVEryTHIng! right down to those delicate claws. Exquisite!
