Photos - Week of 28 May 2017

Witnessed a Bald Eagle hunting fish. Got some photos but they are very poor. The Eagle dove into the lake and completely submerged. It then flew behind a spit of land to stalk some Mallards but the Mallards must have been on high alert for as soon as the Eagle crested the spit of land the Mallards were off making a tremendous noise.
