Brown Falcon

Brown Falcon
Comment:I watched the duel between this bird and the snake for some time using my car as a bird-hide. The risk of death was quite real for the bird as the snake made several attempts to strike with its fangs. I entered this photo as it depicts the moment when the bird seemed to finally be in control. I was fortunate to have the morning sun behind me and the bird was completely preoccupied, allowing a candid shot.
