Bald Eagle...#1

September 2010 (deep in the archives)

While on a drive out to the Whiteshell I spotted this very light coloured bald eagle that was along the side of the highway feeding on a deer carcass. (note how light the body appears to the colour of the head)

I was able to get a few shots before he spooked and flew off... I then proceeded to walk up to the carcass only to find another bald eagle that was sitting in a tree directly infront of me... he allowed me to get a number of shots as well before taking flight.
