bald eagle walking by Martin Knippel

PHOTOGRAPHER MARTIN KNIPPEL WRITES, “EVERY WINTER, bald eagles come to this area where the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers meet to feed in the open water. I found a group of eagles on a farm field near Prairie du Chien, apparently feeding on scraps of food left on the field.” That’s when he noticed this seemingly angry eagle. The Wisconsin resident used a Pentax K20D with a 500mm lens.
