Green Lake raptor captured….

A couple of night ago, I was walking around the lake and saw a young eagle (I’m assuming it was an eagle) perched in a tree just east of the Bathhouse.

I shot the following at high speed, and have blown them up considerably to give a sense of what happened next. Click to enlarge the thumbnails for greater detail.

Here the eagle disappeared behind the trees, but dove directly into the lake and emerged with a fish.

It flew off, fish in talons, half circling the lake – then returned to its original perch for a leisurely meal.
