Eagle attacks swan in middair

I don't know if this is a repost... oh wait. Yes I do know it isn't because I checked the tags, archive, and it isn't 10 years old. -_-
KELLY MUNDAY was quick with her camera while visiting Lakelse Lake with her family in April.
The result was some stunning photos of an eagle attacking a swan.
“We went to the mouth of the Lakelse River and spotted a pair of swans. I took some photos of them flying overhead. An eagle came out of nowhere and grabbed one swan and tried to take it down,” she writes.
The swan was able to get loose and went back into the water and eventually swam away. It was an amazing thing to witness and photograph. I was just lucky to have my camera ready!”

And people wonder why America chooses the eagle as our national bird?

You can see the feathers flying here from the swan.

This one is so amazing to see the actual eagle wing span beside the swan.

The poor swan must be scared to death. It is attempting to actually escape death in the air!

The eagle is loosing his grip on the swan in this picture.

Now the eagle has just lost his grip on the swan completely.

At this point the swan starts falling straight down.

The swan falls into the water below, swims away and the eagle just looks on at his 'lost' prey.



ETA: How about some sauce?
