[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the third and the last posting of this series.

The intruder lost the “battle” and flees away. The local Kingbird (owner of the territory) is displaying “the victory crown”, that small red patch on the forehead visible only after a battle is won. This is the only time I saw this.

This is super action picture. The wing pattern is amazing and the composition is excellent.

Very nice shot.
Great pov and focus.

Superbe, dans l'action, avec beaucoup de détails.

Hi Mario,

I seemed to have missed this wonderful series! Excellent photos and a terrific story. Great shot of the loser in-flight and the winner showing off the red in his crest.
