Nature is absolutely insane and everything wants to kill you.
Imagine you’ve actually gotten your lazy self off the couch, rifled through the cupboards, and slapped a meal together. But as soon as you sit down to enjoy your meal, BAM! An eagle swoops out of nowhere and steals your food.
Alright, that may not be terribly common in your neighborhood. But for one little fox, that’s exactly what happened. Luckily, wildlife photographer Kevin Ebi with livingwilderness.com was there to capture the whole thing.
