I do not know these eagles.I see them from time to time on this small island.I was a long ways off when I shot this but still too close for the male.He felt nervous & booked it.Eagles are a sensitive lot!

ICE SHEET ACROSS DEER BAY ENTRANCE WAY

20151231-Tofino Inlet Ice Sheet Pano

I “tried”to go to the end of Tofino inlet today with try being the operative word. I already knew there was a good chance I wouldn’t be able to.Our cold weather has created ice at the ends of the inlets! I wanted to photograph the Trumpeters that stay down in Deer bay but encountered this expansive ice sheet! If I had moved slowly, I probably could of gone further down the inlet but to be honest, going through ice makes me nervous in a inflatable boat. I could see a flock of Gulls walking about further down & knew that the thickness was too much anyways.
