"And the winner is..."

That is nature in the raw. I'm not sure how you can identify the merganser, however. Did you see the whole grab before the dismemberment?

My word that image must have taken some catching. You must have invested a lot of time.

Pointy beak plus webbed feet, non-wading waterfowl, and not black (not an Anhinga) - some merganser or other.

That's a great shot, too!  Eagles sure do like to filch from each other.
