Bloody Mynah Fight PART 4:
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
Great shots. Great captures.
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.
Cheers Brian

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.

This is a shot of a hawk in my garden. shot with the 5D3, 100-400L+1.4x @400 so effective 560mm. Yes, I upgraded last night! Yay! I have not AFMAed it yet so this was shot with live view. The settings were f8, 1/800, ISO 1600. You will notice that he has had a drink of water in the garden as well. :)
