A Bald Eagle heads off with its catch. Getting a perfectly timed picture of an eagle snagging a fish is extremely challenging. Unless you’ve seen it, it is hard to imagine how fast the entire sequence happens as the raptor swoops in, sometimes at 30+ mph, and in a split second thrusts its talons into the water and makes off with its meal. This image was taken yesterday morning near Fort Collins, Colorado. While I missed the actual ‘grab,’ I did manage a decent shot as it headed out.
