Previous Great Egret
14 of 51 from Dominican Republic

Ardea alba (Great Egret)

Without seeing the legs (they should be black) I can't been 100% sure, but I believe this is a Great Egret. The kinked neck distinguishes it from the intermediate. I'm a big fan of the flowers in the reflection you can't see above the bird.
