My home in Elora is surrounded by marsh areas that attract a lot of wildlife; this beautiful "albino" made an appearance one recent morning and I was happy to get several decent frames.

@: Helen :: Thank you. It's that time of year before Spring colours return, and thus it was nice to see this beauty in the midst of such brown blandness.

A magnificent image! Such a beautiful bird. I love egrets and herons. I don't see them that often around where I live so when I do it is very exciting! This is a gorgeous image!
