The Great Egret

As I relaxed on my patio today, I watched this beautiful specimen perch itself high atop a tree.  Consumed in its preening, it seemed unaffected by my presence.

The Great Egret is one of the most elegant species in the heron family. Its immaculate white plumage is such a stark contrast to its black legs and yellow beak.  Truly a gift of nature.
