Back from another tour to Oman where one of the highlights was to cruise alongside massive Sperm Whales, only some 30 metres away! The above image is from a sequence when an adult Eastern Imperial Eagle (bird on top) was attacking a juvenile of the same species, which was carrying a piece of meat. They clashed in mid-air, locked talons and the juvenile lost its meal (left of the birds). The two birds where spinning down for a good while before the adult managed to free itself, stooped down and grabbed the free-falling piece of meat before it hit the ground. Impressive, to say the least!
