Great Egret

Early morning capture of a Great Egret searching for his/her breakfast just north of San Pedro on the Caribbean side of Ambergris Caye. My goal was to create a hi-key (almost over exposed) artistic image. Original file is full of detail that is lost in the smaller size jpg. If you like this image, come see my Belize Blog at: http://picturebelize.blogspot.com/

Very nice, beautiful bird and good Blog.
Peterson said this bird was the white race of the Great Blue Heron.

I'm sorry I wasn't contradicting your ID, your correct. I was commenting on what Peterson thought of the birds origin.
Subspecies is a race and Peterson thought the Great Egret (Ardea alba) was a subspecies of the Great Blue Heron.

Thanks for your comments. I'm not a "birder" and did not feel you were contradicting my ID. I'm just a photographer looking for pretty pictures LOL.
