Posed To Fight

Two male Cardinals in my yard are in constant competition with one another. It seems since they were juveniles these avians have been competing for a feeder or the branch on a tree. Today, I was in the right spot at the right time to photograph one of the "fighters" in their playtime. Looking into its eyes, it looks more serious than play... as they say... "If looks could kill."
