Bald Eagle
Photographer: Dawn Wilson
Location: Longmont, Colorado
Story: 
I photograph eagles year round all across the United States. I had been watching this adult eagle, and her mate, not far from my home in Colorado. She spotted the same ripple on the surface of the water that I had seen. I barely had enough time to get my camera ready before she flew in, talons outstretched, to grab the fish just below the surface of the water.
