Bald Eagle vs. Catfish

Travis Frank

Who wins in this battle?  Bald Eagle vs. Catfish?  I think this is an easy one.  Me!  I win because I get the chance to sneak close enough for a shot at the distracted eagle.  Ha!  These birds are becoming more common every year.  A few weeks ago I was floating down the Mississippi river in search of walleyes.  Yes, we found the walleyes, but we also stumbled across this epic scene.  The eagle was totally consumed by his meal and we drifted within range of my camera.  I must say that a close glimpse at these birds never gets old.  Never!  I hope you enjoy this view as much as I did taking it!
