Great Egret

Canals in the US Southeast such as this one are full of wading birds including the striking Great Egret, a large slender white heron with black legs and a yellow beak. I saw this scene on a trip to Florida last spring. You can see the new green of the grass filled with daisies in the foreground. I love how the soft greens and browns set off the bright white bird in this painting.
