First year Bald Eagle Juvenile warning others to stay away from its catch, Kachemak Bay Alaska.
Everything started out as normal the morning this image was made last month in Alaska, plenty of eagles, good winds, calm seas and warm sunshine. After checking the tides I realized that the conditions were just above optimal for a favorite spot. When our workshop group arrived we found at least two dozen eagles all at eye level high atop a gravel bar at low tide with a beautiful blue water background all fighting for a few fish carcasses that were too heavy to fly off with. What happened after we arrived has one of the greatest sessions in Bald eagle photography history. This was any bird photographeres dream come true for sure, only better. The only serious concern anyone had to worry about was did we all have enough memory cards?
