Leucistic Reddish Egret

After some research, this, I believe, is the offspring of a Reddish and a White Morph, a stray white morph feather, a Leucistic Reddish Egret.
He was dancing and prancing and was extremely friendly.  There were some children with fishing nets and "Lou" here went right up to investigate their catch repeatedly.
I used my 70-200mm, 2.8, with a 2X extender, and I am quite pleased with it's focusing abilities.
The water was very shallow as you can see, and the Egret put on a show, and I had a front row seat!
These images were taken on Fort Meyers Beach area.
Best show ever!
