A brave crow was photographed hopping on the back of an eagle mid-flight and enjoying a free ride. This once in a lifetime shot was made by the photographer Phoo Chan who was photographing a bald eagle hunting for food in Seabeck, Washington.
Previous pinner: Bald Eagle in flight. We have had eagles drop salmon on our porch in the past as the they fly to the trees from the Russian River to eat their catch. Like the scales on butterfly wings!
The Eagle He clasps the crag with crooked hands; Close to the sun in lonely lands, Ringed with the azure world he stands. The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls; He watches from his mountain walls, And like a thunderbolt he falls.
