[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A trait of the White-Bellied Sea Eagle i notice is that it tends to perch on a tall tree near the water edge and swoop down onto the water to sink its talons into the fish (or even terrapins, frogs and rats!)

However, when that's not possible, it will circle in the air and scout for a suitable target before diving down again.

This shot was taken while it's circling, looking for prey. It was overcast, which is perfect to prevent the white feathers from "blowing out".
