Alaska – Bald Eagles at the Bay

A change of pace to a different inhabitant of Hallo Bay.  There were numerous bald eagles perching and flying around the area there all week but I managed to scare pretty much all of them away.  I got some decent stationary shots but none that I was particularly happy with until I got this sequence.  We saw this particular eagle perched in the same place several times but he always flew away before I could get a lens on him.  I finally got him near the end of the week…..a beautiful bird for sure!

The Launch

I especially like these because of the snowy mountains in the background.

    • Thank You – are there any eagles in Texas?

      • Actually they do have sightings down at Lake Buchanan in the wintertime. The eagles migrate to Texas. They have a cruise of the lake you can take to view the eagles. The area is called Canyon of the Eagles.

  7. I loved seeing the two shots back to back to get a sense of what it’s like to watch him take off.
    I had the opportunity to see an eagle in the wild in Vancouver. So majestic.

    • Thanks Jeannette! We are indeed very fortunate to be able to go to some of these exotic areas – especially to photograph things like bears and wolves.
