[White Egret]

Here is a snowy egret, photographed on Siesta Key, mid 1980's, with film. Someone asked if this was processed/printed on fabric but no, this was actually roller-scanned from a print way back when....

You can tell a snowy egret from a great egret or a (white variation) blue heron by its combination of black legs and yellow "slippers".

Below is a short video clip (more recent, 4k video, 2019) where you can see both the coloring as well as typical behavior, spotting and spearing a fish.
