Caught this scrap out in the edge of the yard the other day. Bird was protecting her nest against this 5 foot racer. It went on for over an hour till it finally got dark.

Great action shots Nick - thanks for sharing!
 
Very cool! Those are both critters with attitudes to start with. I bet that was a heckuva scrap.

Did the eggs make it?


They had already hatched, and since I haven`t heard any chirping from it since then, I suspect they ended up as supper for the snake that night.
