Photo of the day

So this is awesome.  Photo of a Golden Eagle in Russia successfully attacking a deer (couple more photos at the link):

“I’ve been assessing deer causes of death in Russia for 18 years—this is the first time I’ve seen anything like this,” Kerley said in a Wildlife Conservation Society statement on the camera-trap images.

The researchers checked the photos in the trap only after finding the deer, dead in the snow nearby.

The photos showed the golden eagle, which is larger and heavier than a bald eagle, bearing down on the young deer. The attack took place in a forest near a power line clearing at the Lazovsky State Nature Reserve in the Russian Far East.

Steve goes “On the Record”

So, I spent an hour of my time on Friday morning recording a 30 minute tv show for Saturday night only to have it never make the air.  Damn the Auburn vs. Texas A&M football game that pre-empted us was really long.  At least they run the show on-line.  I can’t embed it, but you can watch me here.
