Description

We were staying in Haines, AK in Sept 2018 and spent a day and a half watching bears and eagles feeding on salmon in the Chilkoot River. This eagle was perched on a rock near the rivers edge on the opposite bank when I saw a bear come out of the brush behind it. I figured the bear was too close and the eagle would take off so I quickly changed the settings on my camera and lens (Nikon D500 and Tamron 150-600) and caught the eagle in flight just over the water.
