Great Blue Heron Mating Ritual
See above
Belmar Park, Lakewood, CO
The male finds sticks and brings them to the female. The female raises her beak to the sky and then bows down before the male. He beaks her the stick, which she adds to the nest. Like most lovers, the herons occasionally skip the ritual and just focus on finishing what they're working on.
