We had another beautiful, uncharacteristically clear, dry weekend out on Prince William Sound. There was an active eagle nest near where we anchored Saturday night. So we staked it out for a while. We managed to witness one fishing pass within decent shooting range.

Nikon D800E, 300mm f4 w/1.4x TC
f/7.1 @ 420 mm, 1/2500, ISO 500

Inbound from the perch.

Thanks for looking, guys. This was one of our easier stakeouts. We were in deep enough water for my bride to fish while I sat and stared at the birds. Unfortunately I captured more than she did. Though she's mainly into fishing and the catching isn't all that important :smile:
