Blue Heron fighting

I had gone to the lake early in the morning to capture the full moon setting. I set up my tripod and noticed 3 blue Heron standing on the shore, along with several Canada geese. Suddenly, two of the heron began chasing each other as I began shooting the activity. Before long they were hovering over the water, wings out-stretched, pecking and clawing at each other. I think they were two males fighting for the affection of the female. I was so happy to have been there at that moment to witness and capture an amazing sight.

Location: Lake Winnisquam, Laconia, NH
