    Exellent picture.

    Reminds of the time I was driving to work and saw an Eagle latch on to a large Gar, probably a 3 footer. He struggled and it about sunk him. He finally had to let go as his feet were getting wet. That eagle literally grabbed more than he could eat.

    Picture in a thousand that is - one of those that is more than memorable. Love it.

    Beautiful, beautiful bird, and needless to say, the association of such is more gratifying

    nice, my kids got to see a eagle grab a fish , but I have yet to see it. I am waiting to see the eagle grab a duck off the water though.

    Great photo! I'll never forget the first time I saw an Eagle up close - I had not realized how big they are. Now I can picture what Elmer Keith wrote about with eagles picking up baby sheep. The one I saw up over our truck -- I figured it could give our truck quite a fight!

    There should only be pride in the fact that this majestic bird represents the USA.

    I'm glad it's our national symbol. Only time Ben Franklin was wrong was on this very thing.......He wanted the national bird to be the turkey!

    On a side note, we just started seeing them near our home in Virginia. They are still rare to see here, but I'm glad to see them.
