Earlier this week, a friend of mine and I decided to head into the mountains and do a little photography.
We went to a place called Sheep Bridge south of where we live and close to the mountains. After checking out the river bank and seeing a few subjects, we decided to return to the Jeep and go elsewhere.
As we came around a bend in the river, we both noticed a Bald Eagle on the opposite side, apparently feeding. I began taking pictures, getting closer, taking more photos, getting a little bit closer, taking more photos, until we were directly across the river from the eagle.
As the eagle fed, a second Bald Eagle circled the one on the ground, then flew off to find a Kokanee Salmon of its own to lunch on. Moments later, a Ring-billed Gull landed nearby and began making its way towards the eagle.
One long stare from the eagle and the gull decided it would wait and pick on the scraps.
