Fun Friday: Out On a Limb

While editing some older, Alaska images, I ran across this one image that I don’t believe I ever posted. While photographing bald eagles in the Valley of Eagles (near Haines, Alaska), this adult eagle flew in and landed in a dead tree a short distance from me:

In this image, he is conversing with another eagle, perched a short distance below him.
