The Crow and the Foe

Thanks to Grace and Lauren for sending this photo of a very angry crow tackling a huge vulture. The photo was featured as photo of the day on a British news site, Telegraph.co.uk.

The caption to the photo reads: A crow hitches a ride on a vulture in Soria, Spain.

But I think Lauren nailed it:
I doubt the crow is actually “riding” on the vulture, rather maybe the crow was being territorial and dive bombing the bigger bird? The photographer got an amazing shot. And that vulture is one bad-ass looking bird.
