17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Bald Eagle being mobbed by a tree sparrow

This bald eagle picture was taken in Maine. The eagle was being harassed by the sparrow. I didn’t realize until I reviewed the photograph later that there was a perfect shadow of the sparrow as he was flying adjacent to the eagle.
