A brave eagle swoops down to try and snatch an unsuspecting raccoon from the ground - grabbing it round the neck. The cocky bird of prey attempted to pick up the mammal and carry it away but was unable to lift it off the ground, instead dragging it along the floor before flying away.

The incredible pictures were taken by photographer Lynn Kohut in Volusia County, Florida, USA, as she watched the large birds flying overhead.
