This Great Egret brings one of many branches to his mate as she builds her nest. He would fly quite far away in his efforts to find suitable nesting material. Occasionally, as in this case, he would bring a very small piece that seemed hardly worth the effort.
Photograph taken at the Trinity River on the Gulf Coast of Texas.
