First up, that is a way cool shot.
Also. I'm in Australia, and not too familiar with northern hemisphere animals. What is the creature that the eagle is knocking over? Looks a bit like a fox, but ours are way different to that. My Dad has one that used to come and steal his cat's food until he started feeding it.
It looks to me that the big bird (not sure if it's an eagle or hawk) is spooking the little bird (no clue what that thing is) off of the dead carcass of something unidentifiable.
Hope that helps.
Big bird is a Golden Eagle.
Animal is a Fox. Same species as you have in Australia (they were introduced from England IIRC)
It may look a little different because it has it's winter coat in giving it a much thicker and heavier appearance.
OHHHHHHHHH, now I see the fox in his talons. The screen here at work sucks and everything is dark as hades. I just thought it was a shadow below the bird.
Note to self: Demand a LCD monitor for work so I don't make an arse of myself on GT.
Here is the whole series:
yeah I bet that will go over well with the boss.
The small bird is a Magpie.
That's an incredible series of shots. I've seen eagles go after kit foxes before but never full size ones.
Very good photography.
wow, what a shot
