Today's photograph was taken by Shane in Seward, Alaska during our vacation last July. If you look closely at the bird the center of the photo it is a bald eagle. He was feasting on a fish breakfast about 9:00 a.m. Alaska time. He was too far away for good close up shots, but Shane not being as negative as me decided he would shoot a few anyways. I am glad he did I like the way this one turned out.
I did record a video of the eagle eating, he took his good old time and held the fish down with his talons tearing the meat apart with his beak. The video camera left us get a much closer view of the bird. I will attempt a few more tries at putting video up here before I finally give up. Taking a friends advice I tried photo bucket last night and had no problem getting the video uploaded but when I played it there was no audio. Sooo I deleted it, only to go to a news station later and try and watch some footage of a fire only to realize I had no audio. Turns out there was no problem with the uploading, it was just that my speakers were unplugged. ARGH!! it stinks being a computer dummy.
I hope you enjoy the image as much as Shane did last night when I showed him the final print. Please remember to click on the image, it will get larger.
