Great Egret

Great Egrets are common at the Horicon Marsh Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin. The top photo (5/29/10) below shows how far they can stretch their long bodies over 3 feet.  The bottom  photo shows a nice reflection of a Great Egret with its feathers ruffled.

I'm liking all your shots but these are so especially striking, what cool birds. I thought they only live in the south
