Protective Parenting by CailinGore Protective Parenting by CailinGore
Ok, I've called this 'protective parenting' but technically these are 2 different species. :D 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! :lol:

They landed so fast that I didn't have time to frame it properly and cut off their legs :oops: It still got me a merit in photo club. Comments and feedback are welcome :)
