Egret with Tractor;

On our way home from shopping, my driver husband kindly made a detour driving on the bank (last 3 pictures were from last year, not the same day), hearing my pitiful cry not being able to spot birds p;)   To my surprise, I found the small Egret not in the river but in the paddy field following the tractor seeking for food.
Even far away from the tractor being on the bank, I enjoyed the sweet scene Egret following the tractor eagerly a while for the first time♡♡

Tiny image of crow also in the upper right side.  So sorry for the small Egret...
Seeing the same field with rice crop from different angle;
As the crop wasn't clear, I didn't post this pic last year. 
Closer picture of the bank where I was seeing egret.  And the river side.
Thank you very much for stopping by and See you next week;
Have a wonderful weekend everyone;

  3. Dearest Miyako,
    That goes to show us humans again how clever those egrets, and other birds, are for following the farmer's tractor in order to snack on un-earthed worms!
    Great photos and they always make me think about my home country as Japan has so many similarities with The Netherlands!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  7. Such pretty fluffy clouds against that blue sky! Cattle egrets are often found in fields near...what else?...cattle! They have a great relationship in the pastures. Wonderful photos and hope you have a delightful weekend too. :)

  19. What strange behavior for an egret! Maybe they feed him often.
