Disturbing the peace

cc-evening

Picnic Point, 28th February 2017

This tranquil scene at Picnic Point was not as peaceful as it may appear from a distance. If you look really hard you’ll just be able to make out the Great Egret, perched in the dead eucalypt on the right hand side of the image. Moments after this shot was taken a flock of Galahs arrived and one strayed a little too close to the egret for its liking. What happened next is captured in the series of images below.

    I’ve heard of having one’s feathers ruffled but the last photo is an absolute classic…. fitting that expression perfectly! Very funny!
