Photographed at Conowingo in Maryland. The adult Bald Eagle tried to steal a fish the juvenile had just caught. In the end, the adult gave up and the young eagle kept its catch.

Axel, wonderful interaction capture of the intense moment.  Your narrative goes great with the image, I'm glad the young Eagle got to keep its catch!

Great capture of their interaction, Axel! The youngster did well to hold its nerve against the mature bird.

Nice action shot. I see this behavior often in winter when eagles are fighting for the salmon.

Nice shot Alex. Great job avoiding the challenging backgrounds at Conowingo.
Great crisp image and nice juvie pose.
I have been a regular at Conowingo and find it is often a frustrating place to photograph.
