Day 239 - Got you.
In the animal kingdom, if you want a photo of a two legged, four, six, eight legged friend you have to have patience. I've been stalking this Intermediate egret for the last couple of days in the local tributary. Hiding amongst the mangroves, her beautiful breeding plumage drapes out over the water, as she feeds in the shallows, waiting for Mr Right to come along. When she eventually lays her eggs high in the nest of a tall tree, they will be pale green colour.
