Eagles in flight


I was watching a few eagles fishing in the Boise River when I captured these two fighting. Or maybe they were playing “King of the Tree Stump.” The eagle on the stump has that look in his eye that says, “Don’t you even try it.” The eagle that is in midair did proceed to knock off the one on the stump.  Photograph Glen Hush

Diving Tiger, California


I took this photo at Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo, California, in 2004. The trainers were throwing meat into a small pool to demonstrate the tigers’ diving ability, and this beautiful creature looked right into my camera. The scowl on his face is not from disgust or anger; rather, it results from how these big cats scrunch up their nose to keep water out.  Photograph by Briana Taylor
