Showdown in the Olive grove by ludwigsdiana

Showdown in the Olive grove

It was quite hilarious to watch this lot. The Springbuck was peacefully grazing when he came a bit too close to the Dikkops. They immediately spread their wings and used them to fan the intruder away. Hissing and screeching all the time. It did not bother the buck, but they kept on attacking. More to follow.
Haha

Noise counts when its supposed to be frightening! I suppose we can all scream if needed!

Funny how they try to make themselves look bigger to fool their target.

The dikkops look so big! I love them with their wings spread. It looks as though the springbuck is unfazed lol.

This one looks especially nice when viewed on black I like the composition with the two different animals in it. FAV
