Hold me tight


A fine line between love and hate. This image shows a mid-air disagreement over a nesting site, but to the casual observer it could be seen as a beautiful embrace between two lovers. I love the intensity of the image, the highly charged interaction between the two birds. And it doesn’t matter from which standpoint you look at it – love or hate – the passion is tangible and there is beauty in everything.
