Great shots - but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's a Steppe Eagle.

I didn't know either that Bulgaria had wildlife :tu:

νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

I don't think there's much - they've eaten most of it!

Q. How many Bulgarians does it take to eat lunch?

A. Two - One to eat it and an assistant to watch out for oncoming traffic!

So, was the fox trying to eat the eagle, or the other way around?
Maybe a territorial issue?

Or maybe just wrong place at the wrong time.

The fox tried to steal the eagle's prey.  Then the eagle got pissed.

Those were some really great pictures!

More info on the OP here -

Photographer Yves Adams was braving Bulgarian temperatures of -20C to capture pictures of vultures which have been reintroduced to the wild by the Government.

But instead he shot these stunning pictures of a fox and a Golden Eagle locked in a tussle over lunch
