Jordan Lake Dam, Haw River. Winter Solstice. The riprap was busy!
1) the 3-year-old male bald eagle on the left had caught the fish and the 1-year-old female bald eagle barreled in on the smaller eagle and he dropped the fish.
2) the 1-year-old was very lazy and banked off to the right.
3) the 3-year-old male did a 180º turn and grabbed the fish a second time and then dashed for the treeline before some other eagle could try to steal his meal.
