mid meal

immature bald eagle dining on a seal carcass at the beach. i felt like the bird was comfortable with me there, or at least didn't feel threatened, as he was originally perched on driftwood a couple yards off of the seal. I inched in closer, and the eagle actually hopped toward me and then onto the seal as I watched from about 20ft away. it stayed happily tearing at its prey until a woman walked past too close.
