Buzzards Fighting

22/01/2021
This juvenile buzzard (on the left) had possession of a dead pheasant which the adult (on the right) wanted. When I saw the stand-off developing I set a shutter speed of 1/2000th second and an aperture of f/8. After some hostile manoeuvres, the adult delivered a kick to the juvenile which knocked it to the ground. That was the end of the contest. It happened so fast I couldn't really follow it with my eyes but at 7 frames per second, the images recorded by my camera told the whole story.
