Fishing Low Over the River

On many occasions during the recent “Wintering Bald Eagles” photo workshop, bald eagles soared and banked low over the Mississippi River while checking the river for any fish near the surface. This is one of my favorite eagle photography poses … soaring and banking low over the river:
