I'm sure everyone knows by now that the 2013 Word of the Year is "selfie."
Before the age of the cell phone camera, it's not as if there were no selfies taken, it's just that they weren't given a name. And way before the camera, there were painted selfies, otherwise known as self-portraits.
It is certainly not intentional, but animals, in this case an eagle, have been caught in the act of taking selfies!
Eagles are fascinating birds of prey that you can read more about in Eagles by [J 598.9 HAU] by Hayley Mitchell Haugen, and other books in the children's room.
