This Snowy Egret was standing on a rock in the same stream as the Yellow-crowned Night Heron I posted previously. I felt very lucky to see both in the wild and only a few feet from each other, as it was my first time with either bird! I’ve posted several Great Egrets, but this bird is smaller, has yellow feet and a dark beak, while the larger Great Egret has black feet and a yellow beak. (See below.) I snapped this while standing on a footbridge in a park in Seminole, Florida, USA.

FEATURED in The Birds, Nov. 13, 2012

Great Egret, for comparison: Note the black foot and yellow beak.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
