Yesterday around 10 a.m. local photographer Chris Johnson, whose work we’ve featured here often, headed out to Pony Pasture in search of wildlife. He was in luck.
About 40 yards upstream from the small, auxiliary parking lot west of the main lot, he found two bald eagles on a rock in the middle of the James chowing down. Johnson couldn’t tell at first what the eagles were eating, but it was too big for them to fly away with (as they would normally do) so the pictures he was able to capture were much closer than usual. Here are four of them. What do you think they’re eating? Canada goose, maybe? Beaver? Otter?
