    The Chase

    Saw something taking off in the distance and just pointed the camera at the action and took a sequence of 11 shots. Only back on the computer could I tell what was going on. It was a battle between 2 male buffleheads (white) to get at one of the females (brown).

    After the female escaped, the 2 males went at each other in the water. I have the shots but since they were mainly immersed there is nothing much to see in those. The battle only stopped when a gull took in interest in the action.

    Instead of posting 11 shots, I cut out the strip with the action and pasted all 11 into a composite.

    Hope you enjoy.

    Yes - I did enjoy it! That duck on his back in the water was pretty funny - if he only knew we were witnessing him looking so clumsy.

    Novel idea - thanks for sharing.
