Found this Eagle a bit late in the day, but I will try to get there before the sun goes down tomorrow and catch it in the sun.

That would be one of the 30,000 Whitetail Deer that gets hit by a car in Wisconsin each year.

Interesting shot, Tom! That is one of the very few times that I have seen a picture of a bald on the ground. You know how it is...normally, it's flying, mostly trees, maybe an occasional icefloat...but normally not on the ground! Hope that he likes venison as much as I do!

Thanks for sharing,
Ron

Another one of your beautiful wild-life photos - thanks for posting it. It always amazes me how much detail you always manage to capture, both in the light and dark feathers. Makes my attempt at capturing a hummer visiting the first blooms of a cherry tree look so feeble (and I had been thinking one or two were quite reasonable). Oh well, it's back to the drawing board for me...

It also shows how they feed about half the time as well. Carrion is a mainstay for them. Beautiful photo!

Thanks everyone!

The Eagles take quite a lot of fish along the rivers, but it has been so cold lately that even the rivers have frozen over, to our never ending supply of deer along the highways is an easy second choice.

Sure provides an idea of scale. Those are some big birds. Very nice shot.
