Tawny eagle with unidentified snake. Watched this bird pull the snake from its tangled position in some deadfall. It then took the snake to a tree and fed its recently fledged offspring.

Excellent image of this eagle with the snake. The curl in the snakes tail makes it. The background habitat is a bonus. Very well done!

Great action/behaviour capture! Love the pose and the frantic curling of the snake in the talons.
