Cattle egret, Ardea ibis, in flight IMG 9970A - When the time comes to find a mate, Australian cattle egrets put on their best dress, and their bland white plumage becomes enhanced with a golden glow. This bird was photographed at the botanic gardens in the Queensland city of Bundaberg, where a large colony of egrets and other waterbirds have set up home.
