Fine Dining

This series is a follow up to my previous post in this category (Fish On!). After the adult Bald Eagle got the salmon under control it flew off with the fish to a more stable location where it could feed without the fish sliding back into the stream. These photos capture a bit of the feeding (Fine Dining) and another departure.

Technical Details

All frames: Sony a6500, FE200600G @ 459 mm, ISO-250, f/6.3, 1/4000, hand held.

A Better Place to Feed - - The eagle dropped the still struggling fish in a pocket of rocks where it couldn’t get back to the water

Sushi Time! - - The eagle starts feeding on the very fresh sushi. Notice that it has already acquired some dining companions.

Over Crowded, Time to Leave! - - The eagle appears to be irritated with the increasing crowd size and is preparing to leave with his meal (probably to a more private dining location).

Sushi Takeout - - The irritated eagle takes off with the remains of his dinner.
