Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis)
Pegões, Portugal

This heron appears to have stopped to ponder on something, after a long walk along a dam, when she found a small rock to use as a perch. In such occasions I frequently witness countless poses, scratching and pecking, quite appropriate for a few photos...
