I am not sure how you can see it by graphing the difference, since:
In[52]:=
FullSimplify[
Sum[ (-1)^k Binomial[2 n, k] Binomial[2k, k] Binomial[4n - 2k, 2n -
k],{k,0,2n}]-Binomial[2n,n]^2,Element[n,Integers]]
Out[52]=
0
Also:
In[54]:=
Union[Table[
Sum[ (-1)^k Binomial[2 n, k] Binomial[2k, k] Binomial[4n - 2k, 2n -
k],{k,0,2n}]-Binomial[2n,n]^2,{n,1,100}]]
Out[54]=
{0}
