Default Some Cattle Egrets

Last Friday in Wakodahatchee Wetlands. I have seen only one there with the red eye and colored bill. They all seem to have the light tan breeding plumage.

Nice pictures! Usually when I see cattle egrets, they're, you know, with cows.

Love #4 ! There is some haloing around #1&2 - from sharpening ?

The bright facial colors appear only briefly in what is known as "high breeding" condition Nice catch - you are lucky to have caught it.

Beautiful birds, and so well-photographed. Great capture of the wide dynamic range, and wonderful detail in all of these.

Would not have noticed the haloing if Kevin hadn't mentioned it... doesn't seem to detract from the photos though...
