Photo of the day

Back to this week’s Telegraph animal photos:

A juvenile fish eagle spreads its wings as it confronts a young deer at the Kruger National Park, South Africa. Watched by his parents the mischievous fish eagle chased away an adult bushbuck with a display of aggression. The gutsy bird was then confronted by the deer's calf and the pair had a tense stand off. The curious deer stretched its nose towards the eagle before it turned and fled from the winged-menace.
