Venice Lagoon Bird Strikes "La Fenice" Pose


(Venice, Italy) In the early morning hours, this bird in the Venice lagoon struck a "La Fenice" pose.

As we all know, La Fenice means, "the Phoenix," the bird that is eternally reborn, that burns and then rises from the ashes. The phoenix is a royal bird, associated with the sun.

The name of the opera house here in Venice is called "La Fenice," one of the most famous opera houses in Europe. It has burned and risen from the ashes more times than we can count.


The phoenix is one of my favorite symbols. They say it is a mythical bird, but I like to think that it's real. 

Ciao from Venezia,
Cat
