Snowy Egret Battle

I had already reached the not-so-scenic pond near one of the exits to the Shoreline Regional Wildlife Area when I saw one Snowy Egret chase another one away. Although I was on my way out, I decided to stay and watch. Could be interesting.

The one being chased was an adherent of non-violence. It turned the other cheek and skipped away.
