A Great Surprise
Tuesday at the Celery Bog I had made a couple of photos that I really liked, and I was getting ready to go home when I ran into another photographer. As we were talking he suggested that we move to a spot on the point just in case an eagle showed up. Of course within a couple of minutes an immature bald eagle did show up. After a couple of minutes sitting in the tree the eagle dove down into the exact spot where I wanted it to in the water.
Why A Turtle?
We were super excited that we saw the eagle swoop down and grab a fish. These are the moments that you don’t get to see very often. As we reviewed our images we realized that it was not a fish at all, but rather a little turtle. I can’t imagine that these are very easy to eat for the eagle at all. It is a photo that I have never made though so I am glad that the eagle helped me make it.
More Eagle Photos
Making photos with the Sony a9ii means that my autofocus was pretty spot on, and I came away with a lot of keepers. Here are the rest of the photos from this encounter with the eagle.
