This brave seagull appeared to "surf" on the back of an eagle as it made a daring bid to steal its fish. The white-tailed eagle had dived down towards a fjord when it was attacked by the mew gull, which approached from behind.

Photographer Winfried Wisniewski, 66, was shocked by the tiny gull's confidence - because it was merely half the size of its rival. The attack, near the coastal village of Flatanger, Norway, lasted a few minutes.
