Hawk vs. Bald Eagle

I captured this beautiful sight while salmon fishing on South river. It had more success fishing than I did but this picture was like hooking a salmon for me. It made several dives into the salty ocean returning to the skys with fish locked in its talons. A Sea Gull jealous of the hawks superior fishing skills chased him along the shore like two fighter jets in a dog fight. After a suprisingly close challenge the hawk escaped to enjoy his catch.
