Went out to the swamp this morning since I wound up not having to work to check it out. Had planned on trying to catch a sunrise but the fog was so thick there was no sun till it was well up in the sky. While trying to get a shot of a pretty large wood pecker without having much luck I had a big crashing noise all of a sudden behind me. I turned around and happened to catch this action going on.


Highly odd for two does to be fighting. Must be over a baby daddy!

Terrific shot! Beautiful lighting. I also really like the inclusion of the passive bystander on the right.

Woah! This is awesome... I hope you kept your distance... you don't want to get into the middle of a domestic disturbance. :)

Great shot.

Thanks guys. Glenn I was actually not very far away from them. Maybe 50 feet or so. Got some pretty close up shots of alligators there as well. At least had a boat between me and them though!

Awsome! Everything about it is just fab! Sometimes ya just have to look back once in a while eh?

Thanks y'all, it really does prove that you got to turn around sometimes because the better image might not be what you had in mind!

Amazing capture Chris. Very nicely done
Not many people get to witness this in the wild and you caught it on photo.

Thanks HBG, I think besides the tornado pics this is the luckiest shot I have gotten so far.

Simply awesome. You caught this perectly. The timing with the two standing up like that, you even caught a little blurr in the front legs to show motion. Love the lighting and the view of the bystander is priceless.

You can add my voice to the din - an absolutely wonderful capture, well done!
