A Male Bald Eagle gives chase of the larger female, who grabbed a nice Shad out of the Susquehanna River in Darlington, MD, USA. (Conowingo Dam). He came close but never quite was able to grab the fish from her talons.

Hi Eric,

Great inflight actionshot. This photo tells a story and I like it.


THIS is an AMAZING shot..wow...story in itself. Your timing is incredible...:0)

Wow! This is great stuff Eric. We don't usually see the action that's in this. Not to mention the clarity of the picture as good. The DOF works well here and you've managed to frame the shot well. More than enough detail and rich colours. Very pleasant to look at. This reminds me of how the crows are always chasing each other for food. That's one cranky female. LOL Have a nice day. Trevor
