Bald eagle fishing in Lake Crescent, Olympia Natl Park

As I was driving thru Olympia Natl Park, I came upon a family of bald eagles frolicking and fishing along the banks of Lake Crescent. I took many photos as these magnificent birds of prey locked talons, flapped wings and dove for fish. This photo captures one such fishing event, where the eagle has a trout in its talons. the next few frames captures the eagle eating the trout as it is flying.
