I Am Not a Bird Person

*****
So I cannot tell you what kind of bird this is.
If you know, leave a comment. 
I took this on our cruise on the St. Johns River.

Goodness! What a great shot! Sometimes they act like they know how striking they are with the pure white. I think it is the great white egret.

It's an egret and this has to be one of your finest photographs! Stunning! Frame it and hang it! Wow!

Great blue herons (white herons are a variation of the blue heron found in south Florida and lower) have black legs and great white egrets have yellow legs. You were lucky to see this beauty of a "blue" heron.

That is a good shot! I love the bird's stance and the surrounding habitat. I would have said white egret too. I am glad that Paula told us the difference since I am not really a bird person myself.
