A couple of fun pictures of animals wanting to be on the top of the stick. I recently was out and the brown headed cowbirds were dominating a thicket. This sapsucker came along and wanted to get to the top of the stick but the cowbird wouldn't let him.

The other shot is of a bighorn sheep at dawn. I didn't have much light so I had to make it a silouette. The crow was on top of a dirt hill and the sheep wanted to be on top. The crow gave him heck calling loudly at him but ultimatley the bighorn won the top spot on the hill.
