Had the privilege of witnessing my first eagle fishing outing this morning. I joined a friend that had been at this location the 2 days prior. Although only 3 juveniles remained from what was a much larger crowd during the days prior, it was great fun to watch first hand.

SWEET pics and what an amazing experience! You captured it well :-)
I had my first bald eagle sighting about a week ago, and I'm still soaring from the sight.


Essentially what photography is is life lit up.

Great shots. I have been able to capture bald eagles either soaring or perched, but haven't been able to catch them fishing.

Very nice, and well caught. Unless you're somewhere like a dam where fish are constantly getting churned up, fishing scenes are hard to find and take a load of patience.
