Outtake from the same shoot where I HM'd with And I Dream I'm An Eagle. Apparently the main failing of that essentially perfect shot - of a bald eagle in the wild, in flight - was the lack of prey in the talons.

Well this one is the big female eagle, snatching up what's left of the salmon carcass everyone else wanted.
