Bald Eagle In Flight Seward Alaska
Photograph - Photography And Digital Art
On a trip to Seward Alaska, I eagerly anticipated the opportunity to photograph some bald eagles. There were many opportunities on the various boat excursions around Resurrection Bay and farther south. One of the biggest wildlife photographic challenges is photographing birds in flight. It’s hard enough when you are standing on solid ground, and harder still when you are on a moving boat! So I was thrilled when, after sifting through many images from one of the boat tours, I found a few photos of this bald eagle that were in focus, facing in the right direction, not too far away, and with a lovely wing spread! Bald eagles are not actually bald; the name derives from an older meaning of the word, "white headed". The adult is mainly brown with a white head and tail. The sexes are identical in plumage, but females are about 25 percent larger than males. The bald eagle has been national emblem of the United States since 1782 and they have been a spiritual symbol for Alaska Natives far longer than that. It was once on the brink of extinction in the US and was placed on the endangered species list. The population has since recovered and was removed for the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife in 2007.
