A sequence like this is the dream of every nature photographer. We are in Prince William Sound, Alaska, last July 15th. David Canales is paddling on his kayak when he sees an imposing white-headed sea eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) swoop down on a seagull from above and seize it in its claws. A scene certainly impressive, but all in all ordinary in such a wild environment.

What Canales did not expect was to see another seagull chasing the eagle and flying to the aid of his companion.

The brave seagull does not spare himself and once reached the bird of prey attacks him with pecks on the head and on the back.

In a few moments a second seagull dives into the fight, ready to fight to free the prisoner.

But the eagle is faster, bigger and stronger and its claws do not leave the prey. The largest specimens of this species can reach 110 cm in length and almost 3 meters in wingspan.

The bird of prey lands on a cliff and prepares for the banquet, while the last assaults of the seagulls are kept at bay with some screams.
