Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Great Egret in Winter

I took this photo last January on Chincoteague Island, Virginia. Many birds gather there for the winter. Great Egrets are not hard to find or identify (the black legs and feet distinguish them from snowy egrets with their yellow feet at the bottom of black legs and darker bill) but it's still a thrill to see one up close.

Another gorgeous bird from your huge collection. This one looks positively cuddly.
Keep em coming..
Yes, it's rather fluffy. I love how the feathers drape across the back!
