14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Catch of the Day

This was taken at a crane reserve of Kushiro, Japan. Everyday at 2pm is feeding time for the cranes. Eagles seems to remember this schedule as well. They arrive few minutes before 2 and circulating the air around the food source when feeding begin. I captured a moment when eagle has succeeded grabbed the fish from the feeding ground.
