An amateur photographer has the photos of a lifetime as a crow landed on the back of an eagle while in mid-flight. The crow landed like a boss and the eagle didn’t even flinch!

Phoo Chan caught the rare sight in Seabrook, Washington. In a report published in London’s Daily Mail, he says “I was photographing a bald eagle flying around hunting for an early meal when suddenly the crow approached the eagle from behind,” he said. “At first I thought the crow was going to chase away the eagle. I have seen crows harassing a hawk by swooping back and forth in order to drive it away from their territory. I was completely awed to see the crow actually land on the back of the flying eagle.”

If there weren’t multiple photos, you’d probably think it was Photoshopped. But here they are:
