Plumed egrets, Ardea intermedia IMG 7364 - When it's time to think of raising a family, Australian plumed egrets get dressed up for the occasion with the addition of fine and lacy plumage, and with their nest of sticks finally prepared, these birds are ready to begin the next phase of their lives. These beautiful waterbirds were photographed near the Queensland city of Maryborough, Australia.
