Being Nasty


The sun was rising over the mountains when I spotted Avocets that were viciously fighting.  I don't know what caused this fight.  My guess is there wasn't enough of food and it made birds aggressive and territorial. 

The Avocet on the photo above was trying to escape a fight running away on water.

Photographing Avocets' fight was a challenge.  It was still dark when I started to take pictures and I couldn't get a proper shutter speed until I blasted ISO. 

The fights were short and messy and lasted only a few seconds but overall I had a great time practicing to take photos in low light.

Generally, life is good!
