Stork thinks he's a reddish egret

I was at Fort Desoto recently watching the below reddish egret to see if he would do anything funny. Reddish egrets usually dance around in the water when they are feeding. They use their wings to shade the water so they can see the fish better and it looks like they are dancing. He must have already eaten because he barely moved for a long time. I noticed a wood stork hanging around the egret. It almost seemed like he was copying the egret. I've never seen a stork raise his wings up and down when he was feeding. Maybe it's just a coincidence, or maybe he was trying to impress his friend.
