LITTLE EGRET PERFORMS BALLET ON BUFFALO

On my way to Goa, I came across this lake with lots of bird activities. Being a bird enthusiast, I got out of the car and approached the lake to have a closer look. In the middle of the lake I saw a group of buffalos bathing and a Little Egret flying in to land on a buffalo. Every now and then, the buffalo would move and the Egret would lose its balance; take off & land on it again to regain balance. This offered a good photo opportunity for me.
