Blink of an eye

I was walking my dog when I saw a Golden Eagle on top of a boulder. The golden Eagle was eyeing an unfortunate Rabbit then flew down and started feasting. A hungry Coyote came out of nowhere making a bee line toward the Rabbit ignoring the Golden Eagle. The Coyote skidded in, as you tell by the dust, and snatched that Rabbit so quickly that he literally took the Golden Eagle by surprise. This happened in a blink of an eye. Taken with an EOS Canon Rebel T2i set on sports. Dated 10/3/11

Location: Lemmon Valley, Nv just north of Reno, in the desert
