Snowy Egret, Newark, California, USA by Bibek Ghosh

Picture Story

In spring, a local rookery is abuzz with egrets and herons. The trees are overcrowded and the displays to impress makes for very interesting behavior to be viewed and documented. Here a Snowy Egret male tries to impress a potential mate. The birds were in a shade but the white color of the birds and the dark shadow prompted me to use the contrast in camera to make this low-key image of a rather impressive courtship display in Spring for the offspring.
