two eagles stripping meat from a bison carcass in the river


Dominated by Bears, Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) greedily feast on a bison carcass while the Bruins are resting. Two mature Bald Eagles strip meat from a bison carcass in the Yellowstone River, Yellowstone National Park. Haliaeetus leucocephalus has it’s origin in Greek as follows; hali = sea, aiētos = eagle, leuco- = white, cephalos = head. Very simply translated to (white headed sea eagle). Canon 7D, 500mm f/4 L IS + 1.4x, ISO 400, 1/640 second @ f/5.6.
