Italian photographer Jacopo Rigotti took this photo of a kingfisher catching a fish underwater in a stream in Trentino, Italy.
This bald eagle is having a bad hair day and has ended up looking more like scientist Albert Einstein than a bird of prey. Nature photographer Tim Boyer, who specializes in photographing birds, said he knew he had captured something special when the eagle flew in and stared directly at him. The photos were taken in Homer, Alaska, USA.
A juvenile fish eagle spreads its wings as it confronts a young deer at the Kruger National Park, South Africa. Watched by his parents the mischievous fish eagle chased away an adult bushbuck with a display of aggression. The gutsy bird was then confronted by the deer’s calf and the pair had a tense stand off.
What’s more annoying than when you’ve preened and groomed, ready to pose for that perfect portrait… only to have it photobombed by an idiot? No wonder this hawk looks so cheesed off after a wasp flew into frame just as he was about to have his picture taken.
The bird of prey looked wide-eyed and open-mouthed at the insect as it buzzed boldly around his head during the shoot in Seattle, Washington, looking angrier by the second.
