Brilliant action shot, Tom. You got the focus right and DOF. You must have been so excited when this went down. Excellent work. Regards, Irmgard

For this kind of picture we cannot ask a high quality (this is question of luck), but the situation brings the interest. The composition is good. TFS.

Wow.... Excellent shot. You sure were in the right place at the right time. Even though we have a rear view of the Heron, you can easily sense the aggression by seeing the beak wide open. Awesome detail in the Heron's plumage. Congrats!

Excellent image, nice composition and colors.
Could you manage to get more good shots of this action during the 3 charges of the eagle?
Must be fantastic to witness such a moment.
I wish I was there.
Quite smart decision for the eagle to give up. Herons are effective killers too. Sure not as good as the eagle, but one meal is not worth the risk.

Wow!!!. Great subject. The talons on that eagle look menacing. Congrats to the heron for escaping with its life.

Great Capture. As far as I know and the way they appear here, both the birds are roughly of same dimensions though the eagle is markedly bulkier. This animal instinct of trying anything and everything that moves is well captured in this photo.
