13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Great Egret in Breeding Colors

The photo was taken at Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray Beach, Florida. This is a manmade wetlands with a boardwalk, created by the local water company to act as a water filter. I typically spend 1-2 hours there, 5-6 days per week just enjoying nature and taking photographs. This has been a terrific learning experience for me as I have become aware of the many species of birds and wildlife that live there and their habits. This photo was taken shortly after the peak breeding season.

This photo is a finalist in the Natural World category of our 13th Annual Photo Contest. See all 70 finalists here.
