    I think this is a Great White Heron. Can anyone confirm this ID?


    I noticed a very interesting splitting of the color bands on the feathers on the following shot so I decided not to try to correct for it. sort of a rainbow effect.

    I believe that you are correct in the ID. As to the rainbow, I would guess that it is a subtle moire pattern, but I could be wrong.

    Very nice shots. :smile:

    Now, where you were standing I know you shot more than just 2. Where are the other 1500 shots of those GBH that we scared up for you?

    Nice captures of the GWH.

    Gale, Thank you and you are correct. I should have read more. It clearly says the Egret has black or dark legs while the GWH has greenish yellow legs.
