In May 2019 I watched these two birds interact for about an hour along the shore of a small lake here in northwestern Alberta. I believe they are two males in a territorial dispute. The background is a bit messy but I was captivated by the behaviour.
Nikon D4 (old trusty), 1250 iso, 600mm, f9, 1/800, crop to 8:10.
Thanks for looking.
