$14.99 – $49.99
The snowy egret is a small white heron. The genus name comes from the Provençal French for the little egret aigrette, a diminutive of aigron, “heron”. The species name thula is the Araucano for the black-necked swan, applied to this species in error by Chilean naturalist Juan Ignacio Molina in 1782.
The picture was taken with a Nikon F4s camera using a Nikon 28-70mm 2.8 lens, captured on Fuji Velvia 50 Slide Film.
