Jordan Lake, Haw River: 2 Fish for a 2-Year-Old Bald Eagle

This youngster had a fish in his right foot and was headed to the safety of the trees to eat it, when a second fish caught his eye.  I don’t often see eagles or ospreys go after a second fish while they are already carrying the weight of a first fish.  Not to mention the dexterity needed to hold on to one fish while grabbing a second one from the water.  This youngster managed to keep both fish and made it into the trees.  Pretty neat fishing!

      I use Canon equipment. Two different Canon bodies: 5D Mark IV and 1Dx. The lens is Canon 100-400 mm IS with a Canon 1.4 extender.

      Hope that helps.
