I used to think I had everything figured out. That's when I realized I knew absolutely nothing.

Thank you for a votes and very kind comments!

BTW- the skirmish was brought to a stalemate due to size differential. The snake was not poisonous and was a bit too large for the bird to put in it's tummy.

Compared to the first place entry. THIS should have been 1st. An absolutely stunning photo, action, clarity, drama, depth. No idea how this was not 1st. In my book, a total Blue! Well done, fantastic image.

Did the bird or the snake win the battle? This is a very very nice photograph and the timing is perfect.
