Bald Eagle
Photographer: Dawn Wilson
Location: Longmont, Colorado
I photograph eagles year round all across the United States. They are by far one of the most amazing animals to watch and photograph. I had been watching this adult eagle, and her mate, not far from my home in Colorado for a few weeks. 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.
