These white feathered, yellow footed members of the heron family are abundant in South Florida waters, often seen at the water's edge hunting, or fluffing their feathers in an amazing contortion of plumage to impress a potential mate. This Egret was preening after a day of feeding on fish and frogs in the nearby waters. The long white feathers were once gathered to adorn hats of fashionable ladies, which nearly wiped out their population. Now protected, their habitat remains threatened as well as the well-being of other creatures that live in the salt marshes and brackish waters of South Florida's coasts.
