Eagle Eye

This image was made in the fall of '08 on the beach at Fernwood, PEI
I was photographing the kids and I happened to see this eagle landing on the beach ahead from the corner of my eye.
Naturally, the telephoto lens was not on my camera so I grabbed a couple of frames with what I had, (indeed, they were crap)
Then I fired the telephoto onto my camera and slowly walked toward the eagle taking photos every few steps. I guess
when I had gotten too close, it was time for my feathered friend to leave, that is the image you see here. I have no idea
what that lump of meat in it's talons is, it is not regognizable as a creature. I suspect it is a piece of something larger like a seal.
