The shot was taken in Hungary, in Hortobagy. I've worked on the Eagles from 12/2008 to 03/2009.

The suggester wrote: "'Eagle Fight' is an incredible shot of wildlife. It looks so intense that it almost seems like a drawing or sculpture. So amazing that it appears almost unbelievable to capture such a moment in a photograph. Remarkable."

Yes, as already stated below, hard to believe this is not sculpture or even digital art, but it's not, it's very real. It's a masterpiece to have caught it just as you did. Last Winter, over the Black Canyon of Arizona, from my kayak I witnessed two eagles locked together in the air and spiraling towards the ground. I was in current and could hardly take my eyes off of the water never mind try to grab my little pocket camera. Anyway, thank you for sharing this image of so much power.

An eagle was soaring through the air when suddenly it heard the whizz of an arrow, and felt itself wounded to death. Slowly it fluttered down to the earth, with its life-blood pouring out of it. Looking down upon the arrow with which it had been pierced, it found that the shaft of the arrow had been feathered with one of its own plumes. "Alas!" it cried, as it died, "We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction!"

great action shot. one eagle is "roaring" at the other, claws outstretched in the classic lunge position. The flying snow flakes add a sense of commotion and action.
