Egretta rufescens, 25 February 2007

Egretta rufescens, the Reddish egret;
Brevard county, Florida (25 February 2007).

An old, on-the-edge-of-being-decent shot of a Reddish egret splashing about the shallows of Brevard county, Florida. This species is roughly the same size as the Great egret, but it obviously colored quite differently. Though not rare, they’re also less commonly seen than their Great egret brethren.
