An egret /ˈiːɡrət/ is any of several herons, most of which are white or buff, and several of which develop fine plumes (usually milky white) during the breeding season. Many egrets are members of the genera Egretta or Ardea which also contain other species named as herons rather than egrets. The distinction between a heron and an egret is rather vague, and depends more on appearance than biology. (From Wikipedia)

Eleu, great capture of this bird in flight. Great symmetry, lovely colors, and good sharpness under the circumstances. A nice smooth almost featureless background adds to the effect. Thanks.

I cannot distinguish whether it is an egret or a heron, but I like your photo of this gliding bird, very well caught

Egret for sure, Eleu.
Nice caught the moment, wing spread body stretch forwards like an arrow and fine blue background.
Like this a lot.

So you were flying even higher than this bird :)
Excellent capture in full flight.
Very beautiful presentation on that blue background.
Best regards, Paul

excellent the view as the presentation of the flight of the egret.I like its contrast with the blue of the sky as the excellent quality of the image.

Birds in full flight are always a very nice subject.
Certainly that you the wing can see out of the above side
A very well picture with nice colours and excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Beautiful contrasting colors. The heron is centered in the frame, but still a great shot.

Both words can be used Eleu, egret is the species' name of the bird on the frame and heron is the family name of the egret. Great nature shot, bravo, have a good day
