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.

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.

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!
