I am proud to present the bald eagle aerial battle. One of the most challenging photograph I have taken to date. Bald eagles are battling over salmon in mid air at high speed. The holder tries to fly as fast as they can to save the fish, the aggressor has to fly faster snatching the fish from behind and then dive below the holder. I got this frame when photographing with my buddy Jim Neiger in Haines, we had lots of fun despite freezing temperatures.

I hope you like this image
