How To Catch A Fish - Bald Eagle Style

We photographed several bald eagles fishing in the Canso Strait in Nova Scotia recently. A few missed their catch, but this guy flew in, aimed precisely, and got his meal. The fish saw the eagle coming and were trying to jump out of the way :) Canon 7D Mk ll & Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM @ 400mm
