p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Eagles fishing - A slippery story



On a cold December afternoon where the temps were hovering around 10 F, these Bald Eagles were fishing at a spot on the river which still had a small patch of open water. I was lucky to witness an interesting sequence of an adult Baldie on a fishing dive. Hope you enjoy this.

#1. Eagle spots and dives for its lunch. The form of the approach is perfect. Talons extended and eyes on the target.






#2. Target acquired without breaking a sweat.






#3. But..wait! what is happening here? This little one is a bit slippery






#4. Whoops! Dropped it. Hopefully my friends weren't looking otherwise I am going to be a laughing stock.

Nice shots, Amit. If the fish was a little bigger, it may be easier for the eagle to hold in its big talons

Ha ha! That would have been a nice title "Slippery when wet". Thanks, Morris.

Thanks, Tam. Probably true. The eagles were catching real small fish that day it seems.

Very kind of you, Louie. Thanks. These are better by my standards but I see so many fantastic shots of eagles on this board that I feel I need to practice some more to get them tack sharp. That's my goal for this winter.

Brilliant images, Amit. Loved the perfect freeze that you captured.
You might want to straighten the horizon in each of them, though.

I don't think that the fish could classify that as a back rub? Excellent set.

Thanks, TwoFlower. Its funny the horizon is not crooked, it was a icebank on the river that was not parallel to the shore. If you look at the water you can see that it is sharp on a horizontal plane.

Thanks, Juan. Baldies provide awesome fishing shots. I wish I can go back to Alaska and get some shots there. They fish so much closer to shore than the ones here.

Thank you so much for commenting, Rex. Yep, it looks like it did not properly see the fish into its talons.
