Fighting herons
Fig. 71: Two herons are fighting over the fishing grounds on the beach. It's clear who won here. One wasn't exactly squeamish and hacked at the other's skull. Ravens came flying over and loudly watched the spectacle and a few tourists were shocked that I was just watching and taking pictures. You should just let nature take its course. Shortly thereafter, a third heron came and scared the aggressor away. — Vilamendhoo, South Ari Atoll, Maldives Nikon D200; Δt=1/1000 s; f=90 mm; f/5.6; ISO 400; 24 November 2007 13:14:04
