A flock of bald eagles enters into a feeding pattern, swooping down en masse, grabbing fish , eating in midair and then circling back around for more. But the feast is short lived. A humpback whale rises from the water, belly-flopping back down as air rips through its blowhole. The bald eagles scatter and head for shore. The whale relaxes, presumably pleased with its position atop the food chain.
