Hunted

Posted in Photography, Wildlife by leahyetter on March 8, 2011

A couple days after my morning with the Bald and Beautiful (thanks Mary!), I took a walk down by the river. It’s so peaceful there and I was looking for signs of spring. I picked up an antler shed and as I walked down down the river bank, I saw a little bit of green grass peeking though. Then I saw a feather. And then another, and then more floating among twigs in the river.

I think it is safe to say that the eagle was successful in his hunt.

I’d say he got a duck but I’m not positive. Like Melissa said in the comments yesterday, “It’s easy to imagine it tearing a small mammal apart looking at those talons (and cold eyes)!”
It’s so true. So much for peace by the river. But hey, that’s nature for ya.

    The feather’s definitely tell the story that an eagle was there!
