Black Beak, Yellow Feet

Bird descriptions always mention that the Snowy Egret has yellow feet at the end of its black legs.  But I’ve never seen those feet all bright and clean before.  They’re usually under water or caked with mud.  This morning a Snowy showed off its digital assets and I was able to get a close-up moments before it hopped into the water.  Aren’t those feet beautiful?  They go so well with its face.  This bird has become a regular visitor along the east side of the park in the past week or two.
