1 I think this is a great photo of a xx. It’s standing in a river and it’s eating a salmon. It’s holding the fish in its big paws. I imagine this is in the USA or Canada, maybe – that’s where they live, isn’t it?
2 I like this photo. You can see the xx flying high above the mountains. Its wings are really huge – about two metres, I think. It’s looking down at the ground. It’s looking for food, I guess!
3 This photo of a xx is amazing, I think – because it looks so human! It’s holding a leaf in its hand and eating it. I know they’re much bigger and stronger than humans, but it doesn’t look frightening at all. It looks very gentle, with kind eyes.
4 This is an interesting photo of a xx. Its body is yellow and black, and it’s on a flower. They work hard and I think they’re amazing.
