Jim Shemroske drops some interesting e-mails about various things around Chicago outdoors, usually from the suburbs, though this eagle chowing on a roadside deer carcass is farther afield.
He sent this photo and note:
This is These pictures were taken by my wife, Lisa on the same day (10/13/2010) in
Watersmeet, MI, near Land O Lakes, WI
The eagle was eating a from a deer carcass right beside the road!!!!
When a car drove by the eagle flew a few feet away, then right back at it.
We crept up slowly and it stayed on task!!!
His note reminds me that I am drifting towards doing a Critter of the Week or Outdoor Photo of the Week in the Sun-Times Sunday outdoors page.
If you have something in that category, e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
