Chance meeting

A chance meeting in the early evening, no time for thought, only action.
Surprised and dazzled by the light

    Wild Light hosts our winner of the House Sparrow to the Death Award with the post Chance meeting.  Those suckers are feisty . . .

    Awesome capture Rick! I’ve seen a knock-down drag-out fight between House Sparrows. As a matter of fact, I was photographing them when a guy who was talking to me, finally walked over to break up the fight!

    Personally, I’d much rather see them fight each other than bully our native species. That is one incredible shot!

  • Rick said:

    Thanks Larry. They are combative little birds, but what fun to watch!

  • Diane said:

    is it always a fight between these two? Can’t we all just get along? Make love not war! 🙂

    Still, a beautiful..detailed shot.

  • Rick said:

    I think they enjoy the arguments, Diane..

  • Diane said:

    Good release! (I personally enjoy a good debate)

    I see birds chasing each other in flight, is this usually an aggressive move? Always thought they were being playful.

    This is an outstanding shot, Rick.

  • Rick said:

    Thanks, Diane. I think it’s both, playful and aggressive.
