First thing I do at the spillway is to look over the fence to see if any wildlife is by the parking lot. This time I had to scramble to get my camera up to capture a battle in progress. Snowy egrets are known for engaging in mock territorial battles. They look fierce but they never actually come in contact or inflict injuries. I didn't have time to focus or fiddle, all I could do was point & click as quick as possible.
