Bravo ! Tu as de bons réflexes pour prendre des photos sur le vif (je pense à celle du cimetière, aussi)

J'ai récemment assisté à une scène analogue, entre un foulque et un cygne qui s'approchait trop de son nid. Le cygne a battu en retraite.

Je ne mets pas les photos en ligne, elles sont trop médiocres en raison de l'éloignement du lieu de l'affrontement.

Pourtant les cygnes peuvent être hargneux lorsqu'ils veulent, les foulques n'ont l'aire de rien mais ils sont très virulents. Tu auras sûrement une autre occasion ;P

Hey stop that fighting and leave my coot alone.

There is 2 nests are about 10 meters apart (one for grebe, one for coot). The coot passed by the nest and the grebe did not like it. Be reassured the coot is safe!

The greatest battle that has ever been.. The great crested grebe VS coot, who will win?

RealMantis's avatar

I would say it's more of a grebe victory...

Based on a quick check on Wikipedia, I'm guessing that the coot may have tried to raid the grebe's nest for eggs. Did you see that going on?

RealMantis's avatar

You're right, the 2 nests are about 10 meters apart. The coot passed by the nest and the grebe did not like it. No risk for the eggs, there was the other grebe which brooded!

I guess the grebe the strongest?

RealMantis's avatar

On les entend presque s'insulter :D :D Chapeau d'avoir capturé cet instant !

RealMantis's avatar

j'observais le grèbe et le foulque est passé à côté et c'est parti en vrille!! c'est très bref!

merci ;P

J'imagine :D C'est le genre de photographie dure à prendre !
