Can't be teamwork; their legs aren't in unison--opposite legs!
Impressive focus.

Good shot. I don't know much abut deliberate teamwork but the heron may be capitalising on what the egret scares his way (or misses).

Thanks PJ1! There were several egrets along with this one heron, so they were working this creek over pretty good.

This is really a good one! Either of the birds would be a good capture already alone but this is (more than?) double.

I doubt they're working together, but it's a fun shot just the same! Well captured!

What everybody else said - they are out of step (but that makes us smile); great focus; great depth of field to put both birds in focus. There is tension here that brings the image to life. This is a good one!

I am sure they were not working together, but it was fun watching them wade around together.
