Description

Our drive through the refuge was fairly uneventful, until we turned the corner of the last leg of the wildlife loop. Cars had pulled over on both sides of the road, so we drove ever so slowly trying to spot whatever was drawing attention. And there it was: a bald eagle in silhouette against the low sun, top of the food chain devouring its meal without mercy. We were able to pull up just enough to get a tableside seat with better light.
