Great catch. One of a kind. One like this is worth dozens or ordinary shots.

Do the fights end with winners or by mutual agreement to walk away? They are such delicate looking birds hard to imagine them fighting like this

This one was quite vicious with lots of beak stabbing action. Saw a similar situation today but the birds were behind a small islet so I couldn't see what happened when they got together. One flew in then they both flew off, one returning a short while later to the original spot after seeing the other off. Somehow an outcome was arrived at but I couldn't figure out how.
