These images were taken on a dull, grey morning, not the best light for far off action photos. But it was interesting, especially the Great Blue Heron’s behavior as I thought they were done nesting. He was defending his spot as if their were eggs or small chicks there.
This Great Egret tried landing at the top of this tree, but was quickly got the vibe that he should move on from the other occupants.
No worries, just drop down to the next level…
Here’s a spot…
He wasn’t welcome here, either, as the Great Blue Heron was facing off with a pair of Great Egrets to the right.
