A mated pair of bald eagles hover over a mallard duck the female has captured. The male, who is smaller than his mate, will have to wait his turn for a meal from the carcass. The image was captured on Canada’s southwest coast near Vancouver in British Columbia, using a Nikon D700, a Nikkor f4 600 mm lens and 1:4 teleconverter. Camera settings: ISO 800, -0.67 EV, f14, 1/800s.
