        About the Photo

Great White Egret (Ardea alba) also known as Common Egret, Large Egret or Great White Heron. Although there are several species of Egrets the Great White is distinguished by its yellow bill and black legs and feet. Here we have him in full breeding plumage, also in the breeing season, the legs will lighten and the bill will darken. This fellow is looking for love.
