Little White


A Little Egret (Egretta garzetta), commonly spotted in flooded paddy fields, lakes, rivers, and most bodies of fresh water, keeps watch for prey by the banks of a reservoir in Bangalore, India. Slightly larger and with black feet to its yellow is the Intermediate Egret (Mesophoyx intermedia); largest of all is the Great Egret – a nice gradation in size that must have made some taxonomist’s day.
