    While I was out driving around Viera, I came up on two Moorhens fighting.
    large.

    Then a third moorhen came in and ganged up on the one on the right.

    The one on the right was outmanned (or outbirded)

    As the two moorhens pushed the one moorhen down under the water (you can see his wing protruding from the water on the right), a fourth moorhen came charging in and took on one of the two.

    And then it was one on one.

    The two birds on the left won and chased the other two off.

    Best Moorhen fight shots that I've seen Jessie. Normally, all you can get is a bunch of blurry wings and water splashing. You got good shots of their feet in these and they are HUGE. :eek:  :biggrin:

  3. Super shots Jessie - looks like you will be right at home here in the bird (battle) forum. Also the best bird-firght I've seen in a while, myself
     
  4. Very good captures. Good job with catching this action with nice focus and exposure.
