It is not often that you get to capture different species interacting in the wild.

Here a Tawny Eagle chases off a Lappetfaced Vulture in the Kruger National Park.
Was it a territorial display?
Is the vulture really scared of the eagle?
Or is that branch something of a Sheldon’s spot?

Personally I like each image for it’s own uniqueness but I think the sequence tells the story.
