    Default Black-headed ibis fighting over snake

    This is from the same series of shots of black-headed ibis fighting over snake https://www.indiawilds.com/forums/showthread.php?19486 . This kind of opportunist behaviour exists in bird as well as animal and human species where one does the hard work and the other decides to snatch it.

    Chilika. Canon EOS 1DX Mark II, 800mm, full frame shot ie. no crop. handheld

    Nice natural history moment captured.
    The bird with long bill, even when alone, can get rid of snake unless it is too large to tackle.
    Thanks for sharing. SaktiWild

    Natural history moment captured beautifully. I loved the details in the upward stretched wings of both the birds. That makes the image more dynamic. The snake caught in the bill is clearly visible. The early morning light, fog and the low angle adds to the composition. Amazing capture. Thanks for sharing.
