More Great Egret Territorial Tension

.

Sharing a second post on the Great Egrets and their territorial tensions that continued where hundreds were packed in and trying to forage.  It was a challenge because you had to be on the action before it happened, as it was over within seconds!

Great Egrets trying to get along in tight quarters

.

I lucked out on another series of Great Egrets defending their space, or more eloquently described in a few comments from yesterday’s post, performing ballet dancing.  😊

I’ll let these two tell their six-photo story as the tension begins between them as the American White Pelicans squeeze off space while passing by.

Also note a third Great Egret (bottom right corner of first photo only) is starting something with another one out of sight.

That last shot makes me giggle!  😅
