Spent some time in South Floria this past weekend and was lucky enough to have these two put on a great, all be it short, show. It looks like a male and female, however I'm not sure if this was territorial or mating behavior. This is one of those times where I wish I had more photographic ability, but I felt pretty excited to get these. I look forward to much more practice and hopefully a few more opportunities like this.

That's an amazing series Mike!
I love the action and the looks they're giving each other in each image. It had me on the edge of my seat - :)
Of course now we expect more of the same from you.....if not better - ;)
