Cattle Egret

A Cattle Egret riding on a buffalo's back. They are always loitering around herds of cow or buffalo by picking out preys disturbed by the grazing animal. A very successful strategy called commensalism for the Cattle Egret.

...such a cool photo. Seeing the Cattle Egret hitching a ride is fabulous...especially tuck in among the greenery!

Very good documentation of Bangau Kerbau. I have seen a lot of kerbau but not this Cattle Egret.
