in search of eagles

 Well, the weather turned for the worse the last few days; cold, windy, and snow which made outings a little hard to do. Luckily, local fisherman have been cleaning fish along the shoreline, so this attracted some eagles to the area. Been a little tough to get close to them, but it's a good chance to play with my sigma 150-500 lens.
 Had an older eagle land on the lake in front of the house with a redfish he dragged from the ocean. While watching him wash it in the fresh water, he dropped it and it sank to the bottom; not a happy fisherman.
