18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Brown Skuas Fighting

I was on a photo trip to the Falkland Islands. We spent a few nights on each of 4 islands. Each late afternoon the guide would take us to a beach to photograph penguins coming ashore. On this day we were sitting and waiting. I heard a commotion and looked over to see two skuas fighting.
