FLYday - Great Blue Heron Food Battle

Great Blue Herons, Ardea herodias engaged in food battle. The heron on the left is biting the legs of the fleeing heron on the right!
Phippsburg, Maine

FLYday is an homage to what our feathered friends do best, fly.

    Magnificent! I have stalked (in the photographic sense) Great Blue Herons for years and have never been able to capture any actions like this. You were definitely in the right place at the right time. ~R
