Great Egret.......................( Ardea alba )
Late afternoon sun ( to the right ) illuminates her wings as she prepares to pounce at a small fish in water's edge, using her wings for propulsion and balance.
Lake Emerald, in Oakland Park, Florida -US- near Fort Lauderdale.
Seen from my balcony over the lake, late Monday afternoon, September 25, 2006.
