Artist's Description

Late in the evening, two male spoonbills started to fight over fishing spots in a shallow pond. With the low-light conditions and slow shutter speeds, it created the above image which, for me, looks like an energized time traveler being ejected from the portal. Yes, in addition to nature, I’m a science fiction fan too :-) Numerous images were taken of the ruckus, but I felt this was the best combination of blur, subject, stage, color, and art. Please click the image and view large.
