Egrets Paired Up and Some Scrabbles, A99 w/70-400mm G
9 months ago

It was another beautiful day in the Florida sun.

Today was a treat photographing Egrets. It seems it's the time of year for all the Egrets to pair up (they were all in pairs). Even though they were in pairs they sometimes had a third bird try to interfere and a fight would occur. Also the male would bring sticks for making a nest but the female would sometimes push back. During mating time the birds get the green color around the eyes and they display their fine feathers.  The lighting was good and the birds were against a dark complicated background of branches.
