Snowy Egret

This isn't the greatest shot I've taken, but wanted to include it because of it's superificial similarity to the Great Egret. These birds are considerably smaller, with a black beak. I watched a pair of these in the marsh walking up and down the creek, and was fortunate to get one here with a fish in its mouth. Canon 100-400 at 400mm, ISO 200, f/5.6 and 1/320 second (hand-held).
