Displaiyng Snowy Egret

This Snowy Egret is hoping to catch the eye of an adoring female for mating. He is quite handsome with his red lores (at the base of the bill) and the whispy breeding plumage, the photographer would not think it will be long before that female comes along. This image was made in the rookery at Gatorland in Kissimee, Florida. It was created with a Canon 1D mK2, a Canon 100-400 lens at 400 mm, ISO 200, f5.6 and 1/8000 sec
