Aggressive display

Posted by
: Helen : (Helen is photographing in, Australia) on 24 January 2015 in Animal & Insect.

This Wattlebird (Anthochaera carunculata) making an aggressive display was having an absolute meltdown because a magpie had landed on a branch in its tree. The poor magpie didn't really deserve this treatment as the Wattlebird later stole the magpie's piece of bread. The robbery may be seen here.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/160 second F/4.0 ISO 200 200 mm

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!
