Male Painted Spurfowls fighting

Male Painted spurfowls confronting

Shot with a Nikon D300 + Nikon 200-400vr lens

These male painted spurfowls rarely seen in open in bandhavgarh were busy fighting, you can even see the blood marks on the lower right stones, brutal as it seems it is reality in nature. I spotted them fighting while passing by in the vehicle while tracking a tiger, from the time I stopped to when I photographed I got hardly a few seconds and few frames. Couldn’t get both the birds in focus though with every thing happening so fast. One of the birds is the winner here I am sure not difficult to guess, yes the one in focus and with a dominant stance.
