I had to stand up in the boat to put his body up against the mountains in the back. The boat was drifting fast and I only got a few shots.
I don’t think it had rained in awhile by the looks of the rock colour!
I like the colour of the sun off of the glacier in Strathcona. It makes the shot,plus the fact that Maggie missed1
I swear they seem embarrassed sometime when this happens. They fly up to a perch tree and start to make loud chirps. Maybe alittle pissed off?
She really leaned into this one. The wind was up alittle and that gave her more control.
I try to take my shots within 2 hours of the sunset. Anything you get in the last hour ,will be great because of the light.
It’s hard to see in this shot,but his beak has blood on it. I can only assume that this is because he was just munching on another fish.
Many times when a school of fish move through ,eagles will follow and take advantage of the large numbers.
I got a good shot of Moe trying to get a fish and missing. Half the time they miss.
This shot is good to me for three reasons.
1. Strathcona is used as wallpaper
2.the stillness of the water. better reflection
3. and Moe missing the fish.
My shutter speed was 1/1000.
She has the territory to the east of Tsappee Narrows. I do not know her mate and have never seen her with another eagle perched.
The light is almost horizontal and just where I like it. When they come in like this and display their underside feathers,I can’t help but be fascinated by the structure of the feathers.
You can see the smaller feathers growing at the top underside which will replace the larger feathers below one day.
