This Eagle Looks Like It’s Peeing

Christian Sasse, a photographer who documents the eagle population in Vancouver, British Columbia, is waist-deep in the water as he waits for the opportunity to capture the perfect picture of a bald eagle.

The eagle Sasse was observing had come to the beach in search of a snack. “During low tide [the eagles] can access the intertidal zone,” Sasse told The Dodo. “And we have a lot of fish called midshipman fish there that are high in protein for eagles.”

Sasse was not expecting anything amazing to come up with the photos as he snapped a few photos and left for a day. He thought wrong, however.

… when he reviewed the shots later that night, he started cracking up: “When I came home, I looked at the photos, and said, ‘Oh my gosh, this is just too funny.’”
In one of the shots, a mysterious stream of water seemed to be coming from the eagle. It looked to Sasse as if the bird was peeing, but he knew that was impossible.
