While photographing some birds around the house, I had two House Sparrows land in front of me fighting, so I started taking pictures. They where moving in circles during the fight so fast I thought had nothing good until I reviewed the pictures, and I found I got the shot below, finding out the female had bitten the male in the face and would not let him go. As soon as she let him go he flew away with her still yelling at him.
