Description:
Captured this picture in Seward of a Bald Eagle stealing a gull from a sea otter. Lesson of the day...while Bald Eagles are more than capable of catching their own food, if the opportunity presents itself to steal/scavenge from another, then (from this brief experience) they'll expend more effort harassing that creature for its food than it'd take to capture their own. That or the Eagle's just didn't like being shown up! Also, great tip for catching a great picture -- keep an eye on the food, not the Eagle's! If you butcher it, they will come!!
