Bald eagles swoop over the surface of an Alaskan lake to pluck fish from beneath the water.  Photographs show the birds gliding just inches above the water before plunging their talons in to grab herring.<br />
<br />
The bald eagles even try to steal each other's fish, sometimes leaving their own dinner behind to pursue a rival's catch instead if it's bigger than theirs.  Professional bird photographer Alan Murphy photographed the impressive hunters in Kachemak Bay in Alaska, USA.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
