Photo For The Birds
Wildlife photographer Markus Varesvuo snapped this amazing picture of a herring gull attacking an eagle.
Predators will often attack other birds breeding grounds in order to steal one or two of the babies for a snack.
Gulls often work together to get the predators away from the baby birds, but sometimes one brave bird steps up and does the dirty work.
Check out this brave little guy attacking his much larger enemy.
Markus has been passionate about birds his whole life.
He said, " At 11 I took my first bird notes; at 16 studying and observing birds became a passion; at 30 photography superseded other birding hobbies and at 45 bird photography became my profession."
Following his passion has turned out to be the right thing for Markus.
He has won many award and taken lots of awesome bird pictures, including this one!
