A pair of great blue herons in an argument

A male and female great blue heron in the Florida wetlands. The birds had a unique and interesting interaction going on where it seemed like they are having a heated argument with one bird dominating it over the other. It was probably a mating ritual but the aggressive nature of the interaction made it very interesting and unique.
