Feather's a flutter- cattle egret coming in to roost

Photo and caption by Jack Hochfeld

We'd tied our craft to the reeds and cut the engine, waiting for the birds to fly in to roost in the reeds at the end of the day. The guide and my wife we calling and directing my vision as the birds flew in and found their spot in the reeds. I love his hairstyle!

Location: Susuwe Island Lodge, Caprivi, Namibia, Africa
