Courtship Stretch

All herons and Egrets have a mating/courtship ritual to attract a mate. Its the most amazing thing to watch and wait for. Early this morning a cold front blew in bringing temps down to 58 degrees. The birds were waiting for the sun this early morning and ready to show off for the ladies. I found this male Breeding Tri-Colored Heron doing his courtship dance where he Crouches down than stretches up and some times snaps his bill. Loved the early morning light and the fine pose of this handsome fellow. All manual settings/Handheld/Kelvin Scale for white balance control
