One of the best things about wildlife photography is watching the chaos around you.
I watched this ‘meeting’ out in a marsh. I probably could have zoomed in closer but I was afraid of losing both birds in the same frame.
The marsh is thousands of acres, miles really, and these 2 wanted the same spot. Mated birds don’t fight like this so it was probably 2 males claiming territory.
