Is it a bird? Is it a plane? I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw this cool photo of a crow landing on an eagle.

Photographer Hyeongchol Kim captured the moment while photographing birds on the plains in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.

According to Caters News, the photographer was stunned when he saw the smaller bird swoop in on the eagle and perch himself on its back.

He said: “I saw the crow flying towards the much bigger eagle, and prepared myself to capture the fight on camera. However, the bird just hovered above the eagle for a few seconds – and then appeared to just latch onto his back.

“The eagle didn’t seem to mind at all – I think they must have been friends.”
