Cadet's underside

Cadet started his dive almost directly over my head.  As he streaked past in the vertical, this is all I caught with my camera.

lesson learned

This is Cadet; he is this year’s male offspring of Amelia and Ace. He is recently fledged and working hard to learn how to fish.  This morning he caught this medium sized catfish.

eagle and osprey chase

The eagle jumped Ace the osprey as the smaller bird lifted his fish from the river.  For about 90 seconds the eagle pursued Ace, trying to get the osprey to drop his fish.   43 more words
