Bald Eagle in Fall Watercolors
Fall Watercolors

Fall watercolors was captured during the first day of my first trip into Bella Coola, British Columbia.  Having never been there before, and just going based on what I could find online, I had no idea what to expect in terms of wildlife sightings or quality of images.

 

This bald eagle was perched in a tree on the water’s edge, likely waiting for an easy meal (a half-dead salmon, or something left behind by the bears). What strikes me about this image, is the background and what I would call “fall watercolors” as the background almost looks as if it were painted, and the eagle placed in front of the backdrop.
