The bird swooped down to feast on the vulpine in freezing temperatures during the early hours of the morning, under the watchful eyes of Giedrius Stakauskas and Dalia Kvedaraite.
The Lithuanian wildlife photographers, who live together in London, created a hide in the mountains so they could observe the region's wild eagles.
Giedrius, 39, said: "We had to remain as still as possible even within the hide, as these birds are very sensitive to disturbance, and any movements or noise detected would ruin any further chances of sightings for that day.
“The outside temperature was around -10C, but inside it was fairly warm."
The photographers placed the dead fox as a bite to attract an eagle, before waiting it out in sleeping bags for one to arrive.
Giedrius continued: “It is a cautious and quite a shy bird, so we patiently waited until it felt relaxed before pressing the shutter.
“The weather was very changeable from sunshine to heavy snow and blizzard.
“It was a really amazing privilege to see and photograph wild Golden Eagles and we will never forget this experience.”
Giedrius and Dalia, 36, snapped the photos together in March 2013.
