This male bald eagle is standing in the shadows calling to his mate (female bald eagles are larger than the male) hoping that a coyote or other animal will not steal the large fish that he just caught. The female should be large enough to lift the fish to the pair's nest.
I was photographing next to the Snake River (Idaho) when this male bald eagle swooped down to catch a large fish. It was too large to lift so he drug it across the water to the shore - they skipped like a stone! At one point I wondered if he was going to drown! This eagle is standing in the shadows while his head is in the sun standing while protecting his catch. I made this photograph in to a limited edition, graphite print. Prints 25 to 50 remain. This was a hand pulled print.
This photograph won Second in the 1997 New Mexico State Fair Photo Contest. It won Judge's Choice in the International Library of Photography Photo Contest in 1998. I worked in Washington DC in the late 1980's. A number of Washington officials of this period have this image in their collections.
