16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The American Bald Eagle.

Bald Eagles scavenge on rare occasions so this sighting was special. As I drove by the eagle flew off the road kill. I pulled over and sure enough, it came back! This shot was as it was landing to continue feeding.
