|This is a Snowy Egret I caught hunting for fish and crawdads around our community pond. She nested for the season and later we saw one baby about half her size.|
Egrets are a small member of the Heron family and they were almost wiped out 100 years ago because their pretty white plumes made such fine ladies hat decoration.
Today they are of course protected and have made a great comeback. Not uncommon to see them in wetlands up and down the Front Range of Colorado. I love their yellow clown feet, they make me smile!

Bom dia Frank,
Welcome in this site with this nice bird.
Interesting scene, a bit overexposed, because a harsh light, reasonable sharpness, good textures and reflections.
Very good POV and shallow DOF.
