Looking Down On

The Bald Eagle on the higher spot on the stump is almost acting like he is superior to the one on the lower part of the stump. It almost like he thinks the one on the bottom is some petty commoner bothering him on his throne. However that’s probably all just made up in my head.

 

This image was taken on our Bald Eagle Adventure into Alaska in November. I have not spent much time focused on photographing Bald Eagles before this trip, and mostly photographed them as we came to them on other trips. This was the first time that they were the stars and everything else was an incidental. I was surprised at how expressive and how much interaction there was among them (I guess it didn’t hurt that there were hundreds of other eagles around). They really ended up being very entertaining subjects to watch and photograph.

 

We are hoping to go on this adventure (with a new added feature) again in late 2017. If you would like more information, or are interested in adding your name on the list to join us, contact me at contact@wildelelments.ca.
