The Cattle Egret ( English), Bubulcus ibis ( Scientific name) is a common but graceful White Heron which had adapted to both Urban and Rural Human habitations.
They have a symbiotic relationship with domesticated cattle and have thus earned the name Cattle Egret.
Keep a sharp eye for the antics of this specimen photographed in the sprawling Gardens of a Hotel in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India.
What an eye ?
The Sharp and focused eyes of the Cattle Egret have spotted Food and it stretches out low over the ground to approach it’s prey .
Satisfied with a full meal the White Heron takes off for greener pastures.
Do observe the beautiful Boomerang like formation of the Wings as it skims over the Grass.
I spent a Wonderful Sunday Afternoon being Enchanted by these lovely Keen Eyed White Herons who had come come to feast on the worms and insects churned up by the gardeners while manicuring the green lawns.
