Wilder Ranch State Park, California, USA
My wife and I were out hiking in the early spring along Wilder Ranch's Pacific Coast cliffs, when over a hilltop we saw a wild blur, bouncing up and down, over and over. As we got closer, we realized it was a pair of Great Egrets engaged in what was surely a mating dance. I had my camera handy, and was able to capture one shot before they flew off together.
