This is the extraordinary moment a golden eagle swoops on … a deer.

Amateur wildlifesnapper Colin Black, 46, captured the “once-in-a-lifetime” images while driving through Glenshee, Aberdeenshire.

The golden eagle can be seen grabbing on to the fawn’s neck as it attempts to make a getaway.

Not giving up, the young deer can be seen sprinting for its life as the eagle desperately tries to keep up.

Colin said: “I will probably never experience anything like that again. I was out trying to photograph the stags because it is rutting season.

“But I caught the eagle out of the corner of my eye and it was chasing this deer.

“The deer was running for a couple of minutes and then, all of a sudden, two more eagles came, so there were three around it.

“I don’t know if the deer escaped but one of the eagles had a big chunk of something in its claws.

“When you see an eagle in real life, you see how big it is. And when you look at the pictures, you can see it is almost the same size as the deer.”
