These photos show two eagles suing each other in a confrontation in the air in Poland.

The two birds of prey demolished and collapsed as they flew centimeters off the ground in what the photographer said was a & # 39; power game & # 39; between the two eagles.

The duel took place over grassy ground and above a pool of water, with other nearby birds watching carefully and appearing to give evasive action.

The Dutch photographer Jessica Blokland van Diën said that she had traveled to Poland last winter to take the photos where many of the eagles gather during the coldest season.

The 33-year-old said she & # 39; had my mission & # 39; made to capture the images and said it was unusual to see them so close in their home country.

She said: & # 39; Although they come together, this does not mean that they are social beings. If an eagle came too close to another bird or tried to steal its food, it would sometimes turn out in a fight between different birds at the same time.

& # 39; The fights look very aggressive, but it is more to show who is the boss than injuring each other. What you see in the photos & # 39; s is usually power play between the others. & # 39;
