Eagle vs. Osprey
Photographer: Doug German
Location: Madison, Connecticut
Story: 
Was observing some birds flying erratically, they began to do some pretty awesome aerial maneuvers, at first I thought it was just a few osprey playing around. When they finally got into better lighting, I noticed one had a fish, and the other was an Eagle, clearly it was about to commit theft. The Eagle managed to get the osprey to drop it's fish onto the marsh, then quickly landed, recovered it, and flew off.
