The Middle Of May


The calendar picture this week is a shot of the drawbridge over Longboat Pass which connects Anna Maria Island to Longboat Key. That's a white egret in the foreground. You can't tell it from this picture, but their feet are bright yellow. It stands in sharp contrast to their black legs. I'm not sure if I had a point here, but if I did, it's long gone now...

Do those birds have yellow beaks too?

Nope. They have black beaks. But the skin around the eyes is yellow. There's a better picture here:
