Bald Eagle diving photo
Bald Eagle

Photo Image # BAEA 59

 

This diving Bald Eagle locks onto its target as it sees a fish in the water, and quickly banks to drop altitude and change direction.  Its eyes will never leave the fish as it constantly adjusts the position of its body, flight feathers and tail to align itself for a strike.  The low sun angle in this flying photo beautifully lights up all of the feathering on this Bald Eagle.  This diving image graced the cover of the fall 2001 Hawk Mountain News.
