Photographers Comment

Thank you very much! My name is Christine Mallette and this shot was taken in the Wakodahatchee wetlands of Florida. I was shooting with a D300 Nikon, shutter was 500 and shot at f8. I had been shooting all morning and was packing up to leave when I heard the birds fighting in the foliage. I couldn't believe my eyes and just kept shooting. Kind of sad.
