Fishing Bald Eagle

This Eagle is as much a fisherman as we are. More so, the fish everyday of their life. I never mind letting them pick through our nets for the scraps.

Time to tell me the truth son?

I am not sure why…..but many of the eagle shots cause me to want to put fun captions under them. They are so varied in their expressions and behaviors. I have a 7 shot sequence of this very bird, and every shot he looks different. Hope I can learn to post multiple shots at once!….:-)

Wildlife!

Never sure just what you might see in Alaska. This resident Stellar Sea Lion Bull is very sure of himself, and can pretty much do anything he wants. I have seen these behemoths harassed by Eagles and Ravens both.

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.
