Here's one of my absolute favorite shots, "Momentary", where one had been sailing over the other, before being kicked out of the way mid-air, leaving them with a perfectly hapless expression.

@ghost_bird It's such a moment, ne? It's /amazing/ how rapid their reactions and timing can be.

@ghost_bird *grin* I'll admit, there's some luck too, but yes, it's definitely part of the fun, keeping an eye on what everybun's doing, noticing some who seem to be a bit rambunctious, or keen on the courting dance (doing a sort of horseshoe back and forth around them, with bonus golden showers). Situations can arise and vanish so quickly, too, at least by our timescales - a frenetic chase might only last a few seconds, but they'll cover quite some ground in that time; keeping focus is a real challenge, especially when you're out at 300 or 400mm f/4.

@SuperCee @a_bun lol sorry I just interpreted it as like jumping around and playing, of course you would never kick anyone 💕

@porsupah "I immediately regret this."

Those capoeira skills! Those fuzzy paws! It's just the perfect capture~

@porsupah (record scratch) Yep. That's me. I bet you're wondering how I ended up like this. Kicked in the back by my own best friend.
