White-faced Heron and Little Egret

I was following the White-faced Heron trying to get a bit closer for a photo. When I went around a mangrove I saw that a Little Egret was also there. They lined up well for a group shot.

Nice shot Neil! Isn't it fun when you are concentrating on getting a photograph of a bird and suddenly you get a great surprise like this?
