Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus), breding female.

This Magpie had been approached too much the nest of Kestrel and this has endured it assaulted clawing them the back.

Rarissimo e fortunato momento di essere con la machina fotografica in mano, pronto di fotografare un combatto tra queste ucelli.
Bellissime gli ali aperte. Grazie, Dan

non è il primo scatta del genere che le vedo. esimio le è un "grande mago!"

Wow, what an action shot, Angelo.
To catch this scene with the shapes of the birds so well-defined...
That is reallys something.
I can almost hear them screeching.
TFS. : )

Hi Angelo,
I agree with Thor, Magpies are a pain in the a**. I had a pair of Goldfinches nesting in a tree near to my house, I wanted to try and get some photos but when I went back the Goldfinches were gone and there was just a Magpie instead.

Beautiful shot you've captured. Excellent form in both birds, clear shot of the markings in each. Perfect timing I think. Good exposure, nice detail and colours. Well seen and captured, excellent work.

Hi Angelo

Excellent action shot. Good timing on both the shot and actually 'being there'. Congrats!

Great moment in time captured here. TFS and well done

From the sky behind, I see it was sunny. It often results in a half of the bird too bright ans a half too dark. You don't have this bad effect at all on your pic. Well done.
(I think I wouldn't have chosen a square frame)
Very nice action shot.

Hello Angelo:)

Fantastic in-action-shot! Really nice details on the birds and a lovely composition! Good joob!


hi angelo
bagarre en vol semble t'il!

The shape of the wings and the action is wonderful. Of course not perfect but I'd like to take this photo.

I like the arrangements of these birds - they oppose each other nicely in direction and texture against a perfect blue sky.
Good work Angelo

wonderfull capture

A lovely capture, indeed.
