This incredible footage shows how easily a bald eagle can snag a meal.

Most are aware that fish comprise the primary source of food for the bald eagle. Next on the list is birds.

And as you're about to see, it's not all that difficult for these high-flying predators to snag one of their lower-class brethren straight out of the air.

In this incredible video, filmed by Jon Groves on March 2, we are privy to the seldom seen spectacle of a bald eagle grabbing a duck in flight.

This is nature at its raw finest.

Notice the difference in wing beats between the two birds? Not to mention that insane leg grab. Simply unbelievable.

This fleeing duck never stood a chance.
