Perch Wars!

By teocali
The right hand Great Tit (Parus major) was patiently waiting his turn on the feeder when his attacker hurtled into him at full speed, intent on knocking him off his perch - note the head-butting action! It all happened in a flash.

Many thanks to you all for your generous support of my last upload, with special thanks to Bob (bobpaige1), Mike (Greyheron) and Terry (Terry L) for the much appreciated and highly valued User Awards Smile

An incredible bit of reaction photography. Have seen this behaviour before but my shots are usually too late.
Fabulous detail and sharpness

Many thanks for your great comment and UA, Phil - really thrilled with that Smile. Actually I was very lucky as I was focused on the perching bird and about to take the shot when the thug hurtled in out of the blue GrinGrinGrin
