As I was watching this Heron, this black swan swam up and decided he didn't care to have this Great Blue hanging around getting all the attention...



the GBH tried his best to look fierce and hold his ground...
but, alas he gave up and left.

Very nice shots! Interesting how birds interact with each other, and which one comes out ahead. I once watched a stellars jay angrily/aggressively flying around a raven, making quite a racket. The raven totally ignored it, but did eventually fly away (restoring quiet to my front yard! Jays are quite noisy).

Ed, I'm not sure. I heard a little ruckus after taking the first shot. I was checking the image on the screen, when I looked up they were in a sparing position but not doing anything. then the GHB walked away out of the swans range and it was over. I think he knew he was out gunned. :G

Harriet, you got me chuckling,:G
I've seen a few encounters like that. not only Jays but also
Black birds.
