Herons are generally solitary, but when territory and mates are involved, things can get a bit tetchy. This happened for about three seconds, before the two on the right decided that they would live to fight another day, so they flew off rather quickly after some token resistance.

It's rare I vote / comment on wildlife image, not that I don't like them, but you see so many just looking pretty on a branch. This really captures something about the birds, part of their habitat it's a truely outstanding image and well worth the award. The light, the technique composition are all first class.
