Dueling Peregrine Falcons

Above the grasslands near Blue Lake (aka Adobe Creek)in Las Animas County, a Peregrine Falcon apparently saw an interloping Peregrine and sped towards it. What ensued was a winged duel as the Peregrine I had been watching flew at the second Peregrine starting a battle in the sky. The second Peregrine appeared to try to fly directly through while the first Peregrine dived intermittently at it until it flew out of the area. This happened too fast and too distant for me to get any pics unfortunately.

A little later as I drew closer to Blue Lake I was surprised to find the Great Horned Owl in this pic, out in the middle of the day.
