Courts in session

Lined up like the honorable judges. These mature Bald Eagles seem to be waiting for something to happen….:-)

F/V Arcturus

200 miles north of the Aleutian Island Chain, 3AM…. deep in the dark and cold heart of the Bering Sea. Bring aboard 150 tons of pure Alaska Pollock. Capt. and crew are all seasoned and professional. Quietly going about about their business….. “Harvesting protein from a hostile environment”

The Gathering

There are so many Bald Eagles, at times too many to count, that will come on the boat….. As I get better organized, I will be able to post plenty of photos of this unique phenomena.

The look

It is amazing to me how Bald Eagles can looks so different from one another. After photographing them for a while now, and being so close to big flocks, I start to recognize the individuals.

Getting serious

I should start this whole thing off with a few Bald Eagle shots. I promise, I have a bunch….:-)
Alaska and the Aleutian Islands have a very healthy population of Bald Eagles. They gather on our fishing boat in the winter looking for fish scraps. This is not a big crowd!

Good light  this morning

Had a good atmosphere for the sun to be showing like this. Our home is located on the water in the Sea of Cortez. Where the desert meets the sea.

Just this morning

This would be the view I had while having my second cup of coffee. A little cooler today, low 70’s at the time of this shot.
