Today was not a great day for photography, the birds were very far away and the sun was missing too. These two kept fighting over a muskrat house and here is the older bird chasing the younger one away. Once the young bird flew away the older (fully colored) bird would then fly up in a tree and wait for the younger bird to come back, so he could chase it away again.

Pretty heavily cropped, but I thought the idea was interesting.

It may be heavily cropped, but I love the idea of capturing nature in action. It looks like a good shot to me.

Thanks, it was great fun watching them deal with their social structure.

Wonderful shot, even if it is heavily cropped. It gives you more of an idea of just how big the eagles are, something you don't quite get when you see them flying or in a tree. Thanks for posting this one, it's very interesting, far more interesting than watching a couple of crows (at least I think they are crows) chasing off a squirrel, or watching the squirrels chase each other.

Light, shadows, reflections and Eagles. All of nature, wonderfully captured.

Great shot! All the better for being out in the wild, rather than in an enclosure.
