Great Egret in Mating Colors by RaylenesPhotography Great Egret in Mating Colors by RaylenesPhotography
Taken at Gatorland, in Orlando, FL.

The green between this great egret's eyes and beak are his mating colors, which only come out during their mating season.

Wow! What a great angle! I love how the light comes throught he wings...and the shadow of his head is enveloped by them. He looks like he's ready for some serious feminine touching!!! :D Beautiful plumage...it's no wonder they were nearly hunted to extinction back in the day.
