Intermediate Egrets fight over flying fish

Elegant backflip gains fish brief aerial freedom as two Intermediate Egret (Ardea intermedia) fight over catch at Mungalla Station today.

Fish continues dive from danger. 

Flurry of feathers ends with both losing out.

Two other Intermediates from same session in the salvinia, above captured with 600mm lens, below - from almost same distance and almost equally sharp - with 600+2x converter. Tribute overall to 600's quality.
