If ever you need a reminder of the power and size of a wedge-tailed eagle, look no further.
This picture was taken by some fire fighters in western Victoria and, via her husband - he's a mate of the firies - it landed in the lap of Julie Rogers of Brandy Hill.
She happens to know the Mercury's wildlife photographer Jim Thomson, and showed it to him to get his thoughts. Jim, in turn sent it to The Mercury.
Here's the scenario: the fox was in a paddock dining on a dead kangaroo and clearly distracted when suddenly the eagle swooped and took it away. Not only was that the end of the fox, but later that day the eagle returned to feast on the kangaroo as well.
No, it's not particularly local - far from it, in fact - but it's such a striking picture we thought we'd share it.
"In the old days you had to have your camera ready all the time," Jim said. "But that's the thing these days, you've always got your phone so there's always a camera at hand.
"And it comes down to being in the right place at the right time. It's a wonderful image. Wish it was mine."
