Locked in a Battle

Locked in a BattleLocked in a BattleOne of my goals is to get a good talon-locked fight between two eagles. This male and juvenile bald eagle are in a fight over a small fish. The juveniles aren't always as successful as the adults at fishing, which makes them quite pesky at trying to steal fish mid air or in the trees from the other eagles. The juvenile actually ends up ripping the fish away from the adult doing anything to survive. This encounter happened several 100 feet above my head so this is actually a heavy crop, but well worth it to tell the story. I have several from this series of the birds locked and spinning in the air. It was amazing to witness in real life.
