Photographer Captures Mid-Air Food Fight Between Eagle and Fox
Although impressive hunters in their own right, Bald Eagles are also known for their tendency to poach meals from other predators that have already done the leg work.
While working in San Juan Island National Historic Park, photographer Kevin Ebi witnessed a Bald Eagle swoop in to steal a rabbit from a young fox.
During its act of thievery the eagle accidentally snared the fox as well and the two tussled in mid-air before the eagle made off with the meal. Ebi documented the dramatic even in an incredible sequence of images which you can find in the video embedded below.
