Was very lucky to watch this and the eagle just pinned that Rat snake to the ground and bit its head and swallowed it..

What a great scene, Clement. The eagle is beautifully posed with wings raised and looking down on the snake. Top-notch action and behavior.

Excellent behavioral image. Dynamic. The raised talon and the snakes head really tell the story.
