Bald Ballsy Eagle

The Daily Mail has some amazing high detail shots of an eagle chasing - and catching - a starling in mid air. This small copy doesn't begin to do it justice, so you should really go check out the full-size shots.

And it brought to mind another picture I'd seen of a hunting eagle. While the bald eagle in the above pictures was more successful in its hunt, it's got nothing on this golden eagle when it comes to sheer chutzpah...

That's right... this eagle tried to bring down a deer.
Again, the full-size shots from Chicago Wildlife News are more impressive than this tiny copy, so go check them out, too. But the best part of the golden eagle story is this quote:
"From our point of view it's real ballsy, but from the eagle's perspective, I believe he really thought he could do it."
Ballsy. Indeed.
