Alaska – Water Wings (Bald Eagle)


Another shot from Anchor Point near Homer, Alaska.  This guy had just taken off from the beach and was clipping his wings in the water as he got up to speed.  Again, this place was an amazing area for Bald Eagle watching and photography!

Wet Feathers!

      • C&C – I hadn’t posted it as it only has a partial view of the eagle’s face – but I sent you a copy by e-mail.

  8. A gorgeous capture. I like the wing tip touching the water.

    • Thanks Madman! I actually got a few of then touching the water as the took off or swooped in to land…. 🙂

  10. I loved all of the eagle series, but this one is my favorite. The way his feathers are fanned out and just barely grazing the water is amazing.

    • Thanks Jackie – its one of my favorites also.

    Lovely moment. We missed Anchor Point this trip but spent a few days on the Spit in Homer. The Eagles are a little like pigeons down there. 😉

    • David – it is amazing to see that many of them around, isn’t it!
