A young eagle feeding on a salmon carcass in the Nooksack River near Deming, WA

This photo was taken on a winter morning, as frost covered the river bank and leafless trees cast their shadows on the shallow water. The young eagle was perched on the salmon carcass, contemplating whether to eat the carcass in the water or to attempt to carry it away.
