Oh no you don't! As these incredible pictures show, this bald eagle was never going to let a sea lion get at him or his dinner.

As it swoops in on a fish in Juneau, Alaska, the bird got far more than he bargained for but showed he was quick enough to get away unscathed.

Snapped by photographer Bradley Oliver, who lives in San Francisco, California, the dramatic events were captured thanks to his keen eye for a photo.

Mr Oliver a 41-year-old bank clerk, was on a family holiday when he took the amazing shots.

He said: 'It made our whole holiday to see this - it was such a sight.

'Me, my wife Christina and my daughter Makenzie were out on a nature expedition and were actually watching whales - humpback and orca killer whales.

'Sea lions like to play with fish before they eat it and my wife spotted the sea lion coming.

'From out of nowhere, the eagle swooped down all in the space of ten seconds and that's when all the action happened.

'I've been doing photography for four years and I've got a long way to go but I joked it's almost worth stopping now as it doesn't get any better than that.'
