It's not my photo. My wife plucked it from the internet, so we have to make up our own stories. Just liked the image, Photoshopped or not.

I saw this image on a couple of other websites and found/thought it was very interesting. Once I expand/enlarge the image in the browser, I'm left wondering how valid it is versus how well ‘photo shopped' it is.
One reason is – stopping the propellers, which requires a very fast shutter speed; although plausible with the bright blue sky.
2nd – little or no damage/harm to the eagle from the propellers. There are four (4) of them after all in close proximity to each other so one could/would imagine at least a few feathers flying.
3rd – it's my belief it it was in fact an eagle/hawk attacking in mid-flight, it's claw would be -wrapped – around the drone, vice appearing to be resting on it. Or at a minimum, the claw would still be – wide open – as it ‘grabs/catches' the drone.
With all that said, I still find it an interesting photo.
