Aerial Battle of Eagles


Photo: Jose Hernandez / National Geographic Magazine

National Geographic Magazine has just announced the winners of their 2008 International Photo Contest. Amongst the fantastic entries is this particularly amazing shot by Jose Fernandez:

This is a shot of three eagles fighting over a fish in Homer, Alaska, from March 2008. You can see the fish at the top of the image flying by itself, but it was caught in its fall by another eagle.

The photographer that took this picture, Jose Hernandez told me about the comments on this site. Someone told him and he took a look at some of the pitiful comments. Some of you should be ashamed to make such adamant statements like you are experts that this image is a fake, taking away from the happiness and recognition Jose received from National Geographic. I was there with him when he took this shot. If you don't believe it is real take a look at the link below. My shot was 1 second after his, so now I guess we both used 3d models. Blue Skies.

Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
Shots look completely fake.

May not be, but I won't be suprised if we see something in the news in a few weeks about how it is fake.
