I was sitting along the coast of river Mula observing the action around. I found 2 little egrets fighting for a favorable perch. This perch would have certainly increased their chances to catch the fish.

Both of them looked almost of same age and were determined to get the perch.

The fight back wasn’t good enough as the challenger sent the fellow competitor crashing down on the water surface.
