About the artwork

This photo that shows the confrontation between a Greenfinch and a European Goldfinch is taken from the 'Voltige' series produced by Jérôme Guillaumot, who has dedicated himself in recent years to capturing he dynamic scenes of European passerines: birds in flight, disputes and aerial combats.This behaviour is still surprising, since we do not see it with the naked eye, owing to its fleetingness and that is only revealed through the lens, capable of freezing them. Through surprising acrobatic postures, the birds reveal their ferocity, elegance and poetry by turns. Sometimes they are fighters, and sometimes dancers. They get up close and personal, squabble or fly in a flurry of feathers.In this scene, we witness a confrontation between two species: The Greenfinch, which is a kind of 'heavyweight' of our garden passerines, versus the European Goldfinch, elegant yet aggressive, who, in spite of a lighter bodyweight, is not afraid to confront its rival. This confrontation only lasts a fraction of a second and the victor will remain, for a few moments, the sole master of the birdfeeder.
