…morning light is magic…

Eagle Eyes

My wish list for Alaska included seeing some bald eagles, if possible. Never in my wildest dreams would have imagined that I would be getting full frame eagle shots from my ground pod as this one landed on the mudflats right in front of me!

Absolutely blew my mind, which didn’t take much at that point as my mind had already been blown by 3 days of bear photography.

He wasn’t interested in us at all as he had bears on his mind. More to this story coming later…

1/2000 sec @ F11, ISO 1600, evaluative metering, +1/3 exposure compensation, 500mm from ground pod

Lift off which was a challenge to keep him in the frame as he was so close.

Bear fly-by but he will return

    Majestic. Donna and I spent a week in Washington state and saw many bald eagles, especially on Whidbey Island.

  4. Thank you very much Joe! I’ve always wanted to get some better photo ops of eagles than in the Houston area. This was icing on the cake with the bears.
