We came across a huge group of eagles during a shore excursion on our recent Alaskan cruise. I'm not a very good wildlife photographer, but there were SO many eagles I had to give it a try.

These are beautiful Becca. I especially like the family gathering shot(#2).

That must have been an awesome sight Becca!
Like others, I'd agree that the 2nd image shows a very nice gathering. I had to chuckle a little on closer inspection seeing the funny "pose" of the top right bird. It reminds me of someone who just told a bad joke or something :)
The "Eagle Tree" in your last image also has a lot of potential to be killer. That is a very impressive group of birds with only one stray Crow in the mix. Excellent job!

You are a very lucky person to see and take pictures of such a beautiful bird.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
