Sharing the shallow edge of the Cooper River in the shadow of Charleston’s Ravenel Bridge these two waders patiently ignored each other as they went about their business.
The Snowy Egret was intent on personal grooming and the Tricolored Heron was in search of dinner.
They ignored the noise of a live concert happening at the adjacent Waterfront Park and a small airplane practicing banking over the river as well.
The Tricolored Heron finally moved along, flapping his wings in the late afternoon sun.
