[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's not enough that it was cold, and raining, and breakfast was cold, rotting, soggy salmon, but it was a bad hair day too! I am sure I felt more sorry for them than they did themselves, as food was so abundant.

l had to go very high on ISO in order to get any shutter speed at all.

Hi Evelynn
great moment these famous eagles on salmon, even if it was cold and bad. 800 ISO give nice result, not bad. Thanks for sharing, best wishes

Hi Evelynn,
You captured these Eagles very well in their misery. Big birds do seem to suffer from rain and rarely even fly then. The picture displays very well their possible feelings, the details are sharp, composition is excellent and colours natural. Well done.

hello Evelynn

excellent documentary image of the eagles in their salmon breakfast,
fine POV and framing, it shows them from antoher view,
you got excellent results with the ISO 800,
details of their feahters are excellent, TFS


Hallo Evelynn
This is a great image, filled with lots of detail to appreciate. Great timing showing these lucky fellows with their fresh lunch. Although the weather was bad, I do like this scene as it shows that one does not always have sunshine and clear sky to photograph a nature scene as this one. Love the reflection in the water. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards.

  • Great

Hi Evelyn
very nice composition and colours and great focus and details. I like your composition too.
well done.

Hello Evelynn

A good look at the Bald Eagle doing what it does best.Scavenging for dead fish.
They hang around the local power dam too and pick up the fish and eels that get chopped up in the turbines.
The light is low but you managed excellent colour and detail.
Very good POV.
Looks like you had a good time.
