Eagle Talons holding on to Salmon

Feeding Frenzy— After leading a Bald Eagle photography workshop in Haines, Alaska, I stayed for a few more days so that I could focus on my own photography.

This photo of three eagles pulling apart the remains of a salmon was the gem of those extra days. The feeding frenzy was ferocious: guts and viscera were flying every which way across the snow while the eagles fought among each other over the spoils. It always amazes me how much energy the eagles will spend fighting each other rather than just grabbing another fish on the bank.
