Family Quarrel (Photo#6)  “Seriously Dad, I can’t be the first kid to ever lose a coot!!”

The mature Bald Eagle that just entered the scene is now showing its dominance over the immature bird, which is now almost laying on its back (6th image of the series).  At the same time, the other mature bird makes a move.  So far, about 7 seconds have elapsed between image #1 and image #6.

    Another interesting shot Dennis – just a pity Mom had her back to you, as the face positions of Dad and Junior are perfect.

      Thanks, Tony! Yeah, normally I would probably crop her out if I hadn’t made a story out of this series. I may end up posting a cropped version to Flickr.
