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.
But, was that good enough?
No. Snap! Not fast enough.
And the fight was on.
And the loser picked itself up…
And flew away.
