I admire (and envy) you guys who spend hours after hours in the realm of nature waiting patiently for those very special moments

This is a magnificent series with obvious qualities. Congratulations!

Thanks...

I consider myself quite fortunate to live close enough to the dam to be able to spend a morning out with nature like this

The fish got to live for another day. The talons of the Bald Eagle are sharp, I wonder how much damage it had done to the fish.

I don't know, but judging from the 3rd image, quite a few parts are flying off behind

Great series. Love the action in the third one. Pieces flying everywhere, and huge chunks out of the side of the fish. Just perfect.

Cool sequence!
Looks like there maybe some bird parts too.
