I have seen behavior in this manner a few times in the past, but never had my camera on hand to capture the action. Usually the confrontation does not last too long. I've never seen a fight to the death, but it does get a bit nasty.
Great Coy, Ive captured a couple of drakes fighting it out.
Great shots. I've been close to one of these attacks before. Last June I thought I was being attacked but moved out of the way and realized I was just in the way. I didn't get it capture in photos though. http://myphotographymypassion.blogspot.com/2009/06/mother-goose.html
How do you manage to be at the right place every time?I guess this guy figured that what is mine is mine..:) Blessings,Ruth
Hi Coy, Great shots. Love the Eagle shots below as well. They are awesome.. Aloha, Renee :)
They don't mess around do they.
These are great captures! You can almost hear them! Great action, as always!
Fabulous shots. Timing is everything!
Good timing Coy. Interestingly we both watched the same event but so many miles apart. FAB.
wow! great shots, very dramatic. Canadas can get mean! When i was young, they would try to attack my little dog! Again, beautiful photos!
Hi Coy,yeh they can be quite aggressive some of these hormonal males ;-) At least you got a superb sequence ;-)
How demure the mate looks to the wooing. She has got to be impressed with his protective powers. Great action photos Salty. Its always a pleasure seeing your pictures.
WOW! Those first two photos are spectacular. Love the water-level view.
Fantastic action shots!
