Good morning, great egret

My photographic stroll through Portland’s Oak Bottoms Wildlife Refuge led to this lovely encounter with a great egret, hunting for food. Note the orange beak and large body–characteristics that distinguish it from the snowy egret. (Click on the photograph to see a larger picture on a separate picture page.)
