    First Heron chasing 2nd Heron, 3rd Heron got a bit *issed off so joined in. 2nd Heron does a runner and leaves 1st and 3rd to have a rare old spatt. These shots are from rounds 1 and 2. I think it was a draw as they both stalked off to their seperate corners.....

    Very good series of shots!
    Great capturing of the action - the fleeing shots are also very good - comming right at you! A shame that he got that little bit too close and the wings got clipped in some, but very good framing with so little space to err

    That must have been interesting to see these big birds fighting! My fave is #8 because I can see its eye so well.

    Thanks. I agree about the wings being clipped... shame

    Wow. thanks

    Sadly missed a couple of shots due to the focus wandering off to the reeds but I'm well pleased with these.

    Thanks Anty. Its the first time I've seen them fight this hard since I was a kid (too many years ago!!!!:grumpy:) I was torn between watching and shooting.
