On 26 February 2022, I was lucky enough to photograph a number of Bald Eagles at the Mason Neck State Park in Virginia. Over about a two-hour period, I photographed a Bald Eagle immediately after catching a fish, battled another Eagle for the fish, perching to eat the fish, cleaning its beak after eating, and finally soaring through the air over the Potomac River. I hope you enjoy the following story as I walk you through the activity of this and other Bald Eagles. Click on photos tif you are interested in purchasing any of the photos. If it is not linked, please let me know if you are interested and I will make it available. Thanks and enjoy!
Topaz Gigapixel AI is an excellent software program for upscaling/enlarging images while preserving a great amount of image quality and detail. It is an indispensable part of my workflow for creating photographs that can be printed at very large sizes (i.e.100 by100 inches).
My favorite wildlife subjects are raptors, including our Nation's symbol - the Bald Eagle. In this blog I will talk about juvenile Bald Eagles and the techniques and settings I use to successfully photograph them flying, fishing, fighting, and resting.
Whenever possible I include objects of interest in the foreground of my landscape images. This technique provides my viewers with a better sense of scale and gives the photograph a sense of depth that could not be achieved otherwise. What do you think of these two photographs?

While photographing birds at Burke Lake Park in Burke, Virginia, a Bald Eagle was treated to a easy dinner when a Great Blue Heron dropped a fish in the middle of the lake. Below is the story told through several images.
