Cattle Egrets, India

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures
We saw a lot of cattle egrets in a dried paddy field in the afternoon. The light was profuse, and even as I concentrated on the nearest bird, it began to lift off. Although the image is bathed in light, I love it because that is what India is all about—a profusion of light.
