Hello Jose,
A perfect composition exhibiting territorial battles. You caught this one perfectly and in excellent clarity. Great POV and blink in the eye of both birds. You froze time with the 1000 ISO setting perfectly. Excellent work my friend and enjoy your weekend.
Best regards,

Impressive scene Jose! Beautiful and interesting photo!
