20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Bald Eagle

While photographing Great Blue Herons and Bald Eagles in an absolute feeding frenzy along the Hood Canal in Seabeck, WA, I noticed this majestic bird flying relatively close by. It was actually quite overwhelming watching these masterful hunters at work on what was a beautiful day in the Pacific Northwest.
