Hunting Wabbits by La-Vita-a-Bella Hunting Wabbits by La-Vita-a-Bella
Driving along, I spotted this bald eagle. I quickly pullled over, dug my camera out of the bag, and rolled down the window so I could shoot.

By that time, the eagle decided he wasn't going to stick around for me, but that's when I noticed he was eating "dinner".

Originally, I assumed it was a salmon since this was by the river, but after inspecting my shot, I saw it's a rabbit.

The eagle could teach Elmer Fudd a thing or two. :giggle:
