Nature photographer Gary Zeng, 49, from Oakville in Ontario, Canada, was on a planned trip to Xiangshan Forest Park in Jiangxi Province of China.<br />
<br />
Gary said: “This was my first visit to the place and I spent six days there.  It rained for the first five days and was either raining or overcast all the time.  Then, on the sixth day, the sun came out and I felt that I finally had the right lighting conditions to compliment the egrets.”<br />
<br />
“When I saw the pictures on the back of my camera, I was very impressed with how well they had come out.  I thought the heart shape pose of the birds was very fitting with them standing over their nest.”<br />
