Thanks for sharing, benj1.

The snowy egret's feet look like beautiful otherworldly spiders.

Very interesting. Cool.

I really liked the hummingbird, thought the ostrich feet were cool, and thought that the snowy egret's feet looked kind of alien!

The very first photo got me laughing...The Ostrich feet were downright homely. The snowy egrets looked PAINTED on they were so bright and I found it very Interesting the pelicans used their feet to incubate their EGGS! Lots of good info in that one Benj1 ...Thanks
