Kittywakes Fighting

By Seanf
Taken on a recent trip to Svalbard in the Arctic circle. While cutting through the ice, polar cod are made accessible and following Kittywakes dive in to collect and eat. However on this occasion two birds started fighting over the same fish which attracted other birds, created a great spectacle for a minute or so.

Lovely action shot. But it looks too blue to me. I think the whites need to be whiter, and maybe crop left to make the birds less central.

Thanks Dave, the colour was actually that blue, it was quite amazing to see. Will probably have a go at cropping differently, and looking at the exposure. Thanks again.Sean
