It was an amazing piece of luck that I had a camera in my hand! I caught these two in a near collision. The lower bird appears to instinctively duck to avoid hitting the other bird. A really amusing photo.

omg miss the other one lol oops selective vision sorry .. I see the whole thing now! awesome!
I’m so HAPPY, you decided to put this in our group Mark!!! It’s a fabulous shot!! :-) An excellent addition to our group….. WELL DONE!
I had to adjust the white balance and fill light in photoshop to bring out the detail. The sun was shining above the birds, putting their undersides in shade.
Yes. What a great capture. I’ve just spent quite a bit of the weekend, sitting on a verandah (with a book and my camera) watching birds and trying to photograph them. Realised soon that some came to regular spots. So they were easier to photograph. Watched quite a few antics but none as colourful as this.
wonderful shot – great colours
This is so good!
