So I am back after my long anticipated vacation was brought to a crashing halt. Here are some pictures (not fab) of why I am pretty sure our national mascot is kind of a dick.
Here we have an Osprey out looking for dinner from above Oxbow Bend on the Snake River:
And after a steep descent and crashing dive in to the river, our Osprey emerges with a fish:
Enter, from way on high, stage left, the bald eagle/asshole:
Our Osprey quickly conducts a math experiment in his head in which he calculates his mass versus Bald Eagle mass and he decides he will get his ass kicked by the very large and not friendly Bald Eagle, so he drops the fish into a field where our Asshole Eagle comes swooping in to get the fish he most definitely did not work for:
And so, in nature as in our every day life, the bigger, meaner bird walks away with the spoils and the rest of us are back to scrapping for dinner:
