Reddish Egret
Photographer: Tara Tanaka
Location: Fort Desoto County Park, FL
I had photographed this Reddish Egret take an extended bath, shake as much water from his feathers as possible, and then preen what seemed like every feather for many minutes. He was putting the final touch on a feather when I took this photo.
