Winner, "Animal Behavior: Birds" Category

A snowy clash of white-tailed eagles during a Polish winter is among the winning images in the 2008 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, organized by BBC Wildlife Magazine and London's Natural History Museum.

After finding a dead moose next to a rail track, photographer Antoni Kasprzak waited five hours until the two birds, a juvenile and an adult, descended and began fighting over the carcass.

"The old, more experienced bird won, forcing the immature eagle to wait its turn more than an hour," Kasprzak said.
