I captured this Bald Eagle with an enormous fish in its talons at Conowingo Dam. The Dam is on the Susquehanna River and is a productive place to observe and photograph Eagles. This one was taking off straight towards me on a drizzly, frosty day in November. He or she looks resolved to take that fat fish some place in a hurry. Eagles live for 20-30 years and mate for life, coming back to the same nest year after year. Maybe she or he has a ravenous mouth or two to feed at the nest.

These majestic birds of prey are awe inspiring. Their huge wingspan of up to 90 inches, ability to lift up to 4 pounds, visual acuity of up to four times that of humans and longevity of 20 years make these creature fascinating. I never tire of watching and photographing these beautiful birds of prey.
