[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The yellow on this egrets leg shows that it is a young bird, as it matures only the feet will remain yellow. The egret had just finished bathing in a fresh water pond. It will rest until the tide starts out in the saltmarsh and the water becomes shallow enough to wade and hunt.
