Ciao Terry, fantastic action shoot, great timing for a splendid scene, wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hallo Terry
Great action and interaction you captured here between these two moorhens. I very much like the movement of the water as well as the movement of the wings. The waterdroplets falling down to the surface is also a pleasant sight. The bird's face is a bit out of focus and can be expected with the movement of the two, but the "fighting moment" captured makes up for it. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
