+1- First thought was the fox would win, but when you look at how the talons basically totally encompass the back end of the fox, I dont know if he could really fight back?

My first reaction is that the eagle would win, but from what I know about birds of prey, they are very slightly built and cannot endure any kind of fight. I think that if the eagle took any kind of damage from the fox that he would give up and live to fight another day. One good bite to the leg, or wing and he is a dead bird.-------SS

Fantastic image. Very obviously fake though. Whoever did it is real good at photoshop, but it's still easy to see it isn't real. Lots of places you can see it, but the far right edge of the fox is one spot that sticks out like a sore thumb. Looks like something had to be cut out from the fox image that made it impossible to get a better composite.

Still, it's neat, I like it. Took some skill and the original eagle shot must have been pretty darn good in it's own right. That fox wasn't there though.

I'd put my money on a Golden against a Red every time. And give odds.
