Incredible moment golden eagles swoop in on red deer

An amateur wildlife photographer has snapped one of nature's most spectacular sights.
Aberdeen musician Colin Black could not believe his luck when he captured two plucky golden eagles chasing after a red deer to feed their baby bird.
He branded the experience as a "once in a lifetime event".
Mr Black returned this week to a spot in Glenshee where some years ago he spotted a single eagle.
Stepping out of his car, he hastily grabbed his camera as two adult golden eagles took flight, attacking a young deer, before feeding their juvenile eagle.
Overwhelmed by the experience, Mr Black said: "The first eagle chased the deer over the summit of the hill and then another eagle appeared.
"The two then started doing an aerial display for me and shortly after that a third, juvenile, golden eagle appeared.
''It's a once in a lifetime event. I don't think I'll see anything like this again.''
