Intersection of Egrets

This is a mated pair of Reddish Egrets. Both were foraging in this large tidal pool. While I was photographing the one with his wings out spread, his mate walked right in front of him! Neither egret batted an eye, so to speak, and went on about their business. It was the ultimate photo bomb.
