Beautiful capture of this feisty interaction, Nate! Getting them facing in opposite directions is a real bonus!

I love this perfectly balanced diagonal composition.
Beautiful interaction between the two subjects and gorgeous colors and light.
I love that dark shade on the left that gives depth to the shot.
There is poetry in this shot.
