Shot yesterday. Eagle is munching on Chum Salmon also known as Dog salmon. Eagles love this specie of salmon which is high on fat.
Chum is the last run of the salmon , right after Coho (Silver) salmon run ends. 
D2Hs, 200-500mm f/5.6
1/200, ISO-200, f/5.6, handheld, VR-ON, @500mm

Ludo excellent behavioral shot with the eagle feeding on salmon. The image has beautiful depth and dimension – on my display the eagle almost appears three dimensional. I love the scene with the stream and habitat. Great detail too. Very nice image!

Ludo, great to see the solid grip on the Salmon and the wet leg feathers, tells the story!  Love the way the Eagle lifted its head and was softly lit with the peeking light - wonderful behavior shot.
