It is a classic shot but not that easy to photograph as timing has to be perfect. This bald eagle is a split second away from catching a fish close to the surface. To me this is still one of the greatest moments to witness, the hunting skills always impressed me.
I photographed this fishing bald eagle on one of my Wildlife & Scenery Photo Tours off the British Columbia coast. Please find more info about the tours here:
Rolf Hicker's Wildlife & Scenery Photo Tour.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS 7D, aperture of f/4.0, exposure time of 1/4000 sec. on ISO 400, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 300mm.
