Great White Heron

This is the white phase of the great blue heron, found only in Florida. Its is truly beautiful but I can do without this one. This bird started eating the neighbors goldfish from their front yard pond. I noticed the bird and called the neighbor. The bird was scared away, unfortunately it came to our back yard pond. For over a week we scared it from one pond to the other. The bird stayed until all of the fish were gone. I had a collection of cichlids that I miss more the that rare bird.
