Spray of Feathers

This shot happened by accident. I was photographing the great egret in the foreground waiting for its mate to return to their nest. All of a sudden, another egret in the background (out of focus) began spreading its feathers, making the perfect backdrop for the hyper-vigilant bird in the foreground.

Shot taken with the Nikon D5 and 800mm F5.6 Nikkor.
