Bald eagle takes small fox airborne

Guess the fox and his lunch were just a little too heavy for that bird.

When we first moved to SE AZ, my avatar dog was snoozing outside. I watched a hawk spiral down towards him. At about 6' it broke off the approach.

Word of the Day: kleptoparasitism

Impressive high-res photos of the event by Kevin Ebi, a pro wildlife photographer.

He says on his blog: A couple of days ago, I captured an especially dramatic act of thievery. I saw a bald eagle steal a rabbit from a young red fox. Even more impressive: at times, this battle played out more than 20 feet in the air. It happened as I was photographing the foxes in the San Juan Island National Historical Park on San Juan Island in Washington state.

Larger photos: Here.
