A Regal Bird

Following up to yesterday’s post on the regal Great Egrets carrying nesting materials back to their nest in the Venice Rookery, today’s post features some of the birds returning to the rookery without nest materials.

I love photographing these white beauties, especially in their colorful and frilly breeding plumage:
