    The last I will post of this series. This is the start of Round 5 with a flying head tackle.
    Interesting to note the protective nictitating membranes instantly in use by both birds.
    Also the pressure of the beak grab twisting the victim's beak.
    All happened in a split second with them both going to ground on the other side of the rock.

    The story continues. Pretty neat both the nictating membranes are covering the eye.

    It must have been really good to come across something like this. Nice interaction. Good detail on the birds heads. More detail and focus on the nearest bird would have taken this up a few notches, but nice as is. The pressure on the beak shows just how much force is used here.

    Will
