Great Egret Pensive at Sunrise

┬ęDelores J. Knowles 2008 -- The Great Egret (Casmerodus albus) has had many common names in different regions: American Egret, Large Egret, White Egret, Great White Egret, and Great White Heron. Its official name in North America is now the Great Egret. I wish I could say he was posing in a pensive mood, but the truth is, he was scratching an itch. Photographed at sunrise on Lake Harris in Lake County, Florida.
