Re: Juvenile bald eagle hunting

I was photographing a family of ducks at Deer Lake when all of a sudden a giant bird of prey swooped down and tried to snatch one of the ducklings.

It was a juvenile bald eagle.

First attempt failed.  It flew off and circled again two more times.

By now it had lost it element of surprise.

The mother and its ducklings dove as the eagle was within striking distance.

After three failed attempts the juvenile bald eagle gave up.

Terrific sequence. Nice capture!!
