This one is too amazing not to share. What an incredible reminder of the struggle for life that plays out all around us while we go about our daily routine. Photographer Chris Johnson took this from the Floodwall earlier today in downtown Richmond. He said a juvenile eagle was chasing the adult around, and he couldn’t figure out why until he got home and started editing the pics. You be the judge, but it looks to me like that’s a gosling in the eagle’s talons. Thanks, Chris!

 


About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
