    Bird Fight !!!!

    A pair of Northern Flickers fighting starlings for their nest cavity. Fight was long and hard but the flickers lost out.... too many starlings. My wife and I got some nice sequences from the fight and publish article in the UK. This was also a Top Ten NAMPA image the year before. [IMG]Bird Fight !!!![/IMG]

    That is one excellent image and I am sure that there are tons more in that sequence.

    Congrats on the article and awards.

    How does one go about getting published?

    Normally you can get contacted from images posted on website, forums and winning contest. I work with a couple of stock agencies and do mainly short articles and sell individual images.

    Good afternoon Alfred,
    Love some detail on your shot.
    Did you know about this site beforehand and set up with hide?
    fps? How many frames to get this great image?
    Love to see the 'story' unfold.
    Technical info.
    Had a quick look on your website, some great images.

    Graham
