A Great Egret and a Tricolored Heron battle in the sky to claim a nesting site established by the egret but poached by the heron.

Audubon Magazine online recently featured this photo in a 10 image slideshow on their site. It also finished in the final Top 100 in the prestigious Photography Awards this year.
