Kestrel and Magpie chasing each other in the air. Although I saw this species fight many times, this is my only decent capture of this moment.

Hello Anghel,
This is a very impressive image, the Magpie appears to be bigger than the Kestrel. Great sharpness, colors, and POV... Well done

Hello Anghel,

Great captured of in flight birds. Not easy for this are small birds.
I love this two birds. Body shapes look similar but different in colour.

I have seen Drango's chase kestrel! This is a nice capture of an animal's behavior and i like the picture for the action that it conveys. The pattern of the wings is amazing. A little less space on the left and more on the right would have given a sense of directional space.

This is a great picture. Congratulations.

Norocoasa captura,excelent executata. Bravo

Hello Anghel,
what a superb shot. well caught with the decisive moment.
well done.
such a difficult capture and you did it wonderfully.


Hello Anghel,
this is great capture and this is an exponential example of interspecies fight for the survival. It is very interesting the high quality of this performance.

TFS, best regards,
