Description: The African Fish Eagles flew into a puddle in the dry river bed for the catfish caught by a marabou stork. A brief scuffle ensued and the strong winner flew away with the meal.

Story from behind the lens: Lack of rains in the Mara reduced the river to puddled where most of the catfish survived. Hungry scavengers were thus attracted. I photographed with a tele lens from a land rover kept far away from the puddle so as to let the birds behave naturally.
