Ok, I've called this 'protective parenting' but technically these are 2 different species.
The bigger one is an Eastern Great Egret and the little one is the aptly name Little Egret. Thanks to FeatheredSamurai for pointing this out to me!
They landed so fast that I didn't have time to frame it properly and cut off their legs
It still got me a merit in photo club. Comments and feedback are welcome
