Looks like a large egret, Beverly.

Love the olive green water.
Simply wonderful with the reflections Beverly!

A grand looking thing. I wonder what it is?
Is the Lily Lake outside of Saint John, NB by any chance? The bird is a mystery to me.
Beverly Andrighetti: This Lily Lake is a man-made lake located in our suburban neighbourhood, Mary. It has many walking trails throughout its park setting. The bird is a mystery to me as well. At first at thought it might be a heron but on second look the legs seem to be too short.
Everything about this shot really comes together well Beverly.
Looks like some sort of Heron. A big one!
I love these elegant birds, Beverly. We see many herons here in Holland and I've grown to love them.

The nearest I can get is a great blue heron. This one is shedding feathers and makes it difficult to identify.

Elegant treatment, Beverly, and such nice colours
I'd guess a heron of some kind.
fine subject and nice reflections, love this scene!
Oooh - good job - love the reflections! It's got to be a Great Blue Heron... it's the only water bird I know with the eyeliner like that... Perhaps he's sitting back on his "knees" a bit?
