Description: Last year I submitted an image of these two males in combat over a female. On review of my archives I selected this image for entry. There is even more expression of power in the scene.

Story from behind the lens: Truly a once in a lifetime, bucket list experience to watch these two regal males battle it out for the attentions of a female. Their combat skills were in full force and the sounds were hair raising. What a privilege.
