Alaska – Anchor Point (Bald Eagles Everywhere!)
After we left the Bears in Hallo Bay, we flew back to Homer for a quick overnighter before heading onto the next part of our trip. We only had a few hours but my “bear mates” had told be about an area outside of Homer which was incredible for getting good close shots of bald eagles on the beach. We borrowed a car and headed out there and it was as advertised. Bald eagles in the trees, on the beach, and flying over the water. There were probably 20-30 of them at any given time and they didn’t seem at all skittish at our presence. This first photo, which is one of my favorites from the entire Alaska trip, gives an idea of the place – an adult bald eagle sitting with a juvenile eagle and a gull. They allowed us to get very close to get this kind of shot. Hope you enjoy!!
