A nature photographer witnessed an unexpected upset in the animal kingdom on Monday, when a squirrel emerged victorious in a fearsome battle with a huge eagle.
Roger Stevens Jr. was driving past a Rite Aide store in Lincoln, Maine, when he glanced out the window and spotted a bald eagle perched atop a tree.
Believing the bird to be acting strangely, Stevens - who says he never leaves home without his camera - pulled over his car to snap some pictures.
As he got closer, he spotted another creature, a small gray squirrel, sat on a parallel branch staring back at the looming bird
For the next 10 minutes, the unlikely opponents squared-off in an epic staring battle, with the squirrel seemingly unfazed by the prolific predator's menacing gaze.
For 10 minutes the two creatures stared one-another down, atop a tree in Lincoln Maine
