As this post publishes, I am on my way back home from a wonderful 6-day brown bear photography trip to Hallo Bay Bear Camp, located in Katmai National Park, Alaska, combined with a few photo stops around the Kenai Peninsula. I should be getting home a bit later today, and I hope to start posting about the bears very soon. As it will take me a few days to sort through and edit the hundreds (thousands?) of images, I’m starting the Hallo Bay trip posts with these images made on the last day of camp.
There were several bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) that were active along Clint’s Creek, near the bear camp. As we worked our way from the creek to the camp (~1 mile hike), we came across this juvenile Bald Eagle as he sat on a driftwood stump. He was not at all shy and allowed us to walk right past him, within 15-20 feet, and was not concerned with us stopping to photograph him:
Stay tuned for more images from Hallo Bay … including the main actors, the wonderful brown bears of Hallo Bay!
