Little blue Heron - Florida

Hi, I thought this was a Little Blue Heron but someone questioned my ID and thought it was a juvenile Great Blue Heron. Could some one please confirm one way or the other. Thanks in advance

Well, here is an image of a Little Blue Heron I took this week. I did a search for immature Little Blues and there were a couple that resembled your image but not completely.

Frogstar, your bird looks like a young Reddish Egret.
