Photographer Captures Eagle and Fox Fighting Over Rabbit in Midair

Wow. I’d hope that I could react quickly enough to get a shot like this. Wildlife photographer Kevin Ebi was out shooting a few days ago when he witnessed and photographed a crazy sight: a bald eagle and red fox fighting over a rabbit… in midair.

Our evening quest was to find a seafood restaurant that also provided a good sunset view. We found just the spot in Bandon, Oregon. We pulled into Bandon at the perfect sunset photo time.
