CommentThis pair of dark form Eastern Reef Egret (Egretta sacra) foraged close to each other in the estuary at Considine Beach at North Keppel Island, Central Queensland. I love how they are overlapped as they pass each other, showing how close they are. This pair tried to stay together despite a Great Egret harassing them and trying to drive them from this productive spot.
EquipmentCanon 7D Mark II with EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens at 400mm, 1/1250 sec at f/5.6 in shutter priority, ISO 200, with 0 exposure bias.
