Default Branch Exchange

With the nesting herons and egrets the act of the male finding a branch for the nest and handing it over to the female almost appears to be a ritual. In Wakodahatchee of course.

There's symmetry in that - my wife makes the final decisions on decorating our house too. Incredible photos! Hopefully someday my skillset will approach this level.

*After a second look at #4, it's amazing the proximity the two pairs have between their nests!

Wonderful photographs! It is a pleasure to see these rather grand birds in such detail and "intimate" activities.
