Catch of the Day

Today’s post features an image captured during a week of photographing Bald Eagles in the Chilkat River Valley of Alaska, back in 2007. Towards the end of each calendar year, there is a late salmon run in the Chilkat River Valley, just outside Haines, Alaska. Nothing but wonderful photography opportunities at this time!

Here is a Bald Eagle, in sub-adult plumage (“dirty” white head and “dirty” white tail) as it swoops in on a spawning salmon in the Chilkat River:
