Great egret (Ardea alba)

Great egret (Ardea alba) by Paolo Dolina, on Flickr

The great egret (Ardea alba), also known as the common egret, large egret, or (in the Old World) great white egret[2] or great white heron[3][4][5] is a large, widely distributed egret, with four subspecies found in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and southern Europe. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, it builds tree nests in colonies close to water.

That was great timing or the birds are on acid!

Is that kissing or fighting, Pao?

Seems awfully dangerous!

Looks like you’ve captured the birds mating rituals and breeding plumage (in the second shot), nicely. Adds visual impact to the images.
