A male bearded reedling catches a cranefly. This species is a master of balance and the bird was spotted by Dutch photographer Edwin Kats using two stems to position itself over a shallow stream. He noticed the small bird - also know as a bearded tit - looking out for a snack. When a tasty cranefly flitted by, the reedling was able to dip down and catch it in one swift motion.
Bald Eagle drinking water. Interesting fact I recently learned about bald eagles, is that the females are actually bigger than the males. (frequently by as much as 25% total body size) Also neat is that while northern birds roosting are migratory, the south (typically mexico) gets to enjoy their population all year round. :)
