Another one of the great hunters, not like those sissy baldies.

This was likely a quick kill as the talon's on these guys are formidable... and a difficult bird to photograph at any distance... This is a spectacular image! V

Wow, Hal, and you were right there to catch the action. I had no idea a Golden Eagle would
take down a large goose like that. Great shot. ~
