WingDragon vs Eagle in Lombok Island, Indonesia

Very unique and fortunate photo to have been taken, real photo and no manipulation whatsoever. After being chased for a while until finally being 'clawed', the WD (throttle was quickly shut to prevent injury to the bird) was then released and landed safely to the ground.



Taken from an Indonesian Aeromodeler forum.

Simply case of mis-identity and getting acquainted by the bird. At the end all is safe, well and happy.

Indeed it is a Garuda, very true. Our national air carrier flag is using this name as well. According to the eyewitnesses who were at the field that day, it was unusually larger bird than the common ones seen around. Lombok Island is just next to Bali, fyi.
