Bloody Mynah Fight PART 4:Great shots. Great captures.
Last Thursday afternoon (beside my office window), 2 pairs of Mynah birds (total 4 ... might be husband wife team) were having a brutal fight ... one Mynah bird had the wing of another one in its claw and twisting it, as if to tear it off ... just would not let go, it was as if I was watching UFC ... it looked quite brutal, but luckily they all flew off in the end. Anyway, here are some pics of that fight. Images made with Nikon D7000 + 18-300 VR at 300mm, 1/500 sec, f/8, ISO 1600
I've seen a few fights between male sparrows here where they have ended up fighting on the road totally oblivious to what's going on around them. Never had the Camera close by though. Never seen blood either from such a fight.
Thanks for your kind words.
I've never seen birds fight like that before ... I always carry a DSLR and a "super zoom" with me ... this opportunity presented itself and I got lucky.
