2016—Aptly Named

The aptly named cattle egret spends its time among herds of cattle, feeding on insects in the grass disturbed when the bovines move about.  This herd of Brahman cattle in Costa Rica keeps the cattle egrets surrounding them very well fed and the cattle egrets are quite agile and maneuver expertly among the cattle, avoiding hooves and swishing tails as they fly around the crowded pasture.
