The battle of the bee eaters. West Bengal, IndiA: STUNNING images of two feisty blue-tailed bee eaters battling and arguing mid-air have been captured in Khisma Forest, West Bengal, India.Images show the two blue-tailed bee eaters first fighting over food and then almost coming to blows.The thrilling images show the battling bee eaters unleashing their wrath against each other.A blue-tailed bee eater?s face has a narrow blue patch with a black eye stripe, and a yellow and brown throat; the tail is blue and the beak is black.The species has a patchy breeding distribution across India, Myanmar, and parts of Southeast Asia.These images were captured by A.R Samim Shaikh (32) using a Canon EOS 90D in the Khisma Forest, West Bengal, India.?The most special thing about their fight is that they actually fight for nothing, ? said Shaikh.?They fight just because they like to fight.?But if a male and female bird fight for reconciliation and the male bird wins then the female bird allows it to mate.?It felt amazing capturing these amazing shots of the birds coming to blows mid-air.? mediadrumimages/A.R.SamimShaikh
