Sometimes I take a photograph, and when I look at it on the computer, I say to myself... did I really take this?! Such is the case of this series set of a 4th year Bald Eagle.

Since my first time photographing a Bald Eagle in the wild, I have always dreamed of getting a series of images that shows an Eagle coming in, grabbing a fish from the water and continuing onward. It's been years in the making, but finally I managed to capture one!

My friends Susan Wrisley and Steve Bennet jumped into my truck with me, as we headed up to Warren Maine where the Alewife are running. There is an area here where the state blocks the river and regulates the flow of the fish for various reasons. Because of this back up of fish, Bald Eagles and Osprey come to feed. We only saw 5 bald Eagles on the day, however, there was a large number of Osprey.

Images of Osprey are forth coming, and maybe a few more of this Bald Eagle.

Please be sure to view these full sized... they truly are spectacular (well, they are to me).
