Hi everyone - and thank you, thank you for the comments. This was taken in Homer, Alaska, in March, which is in the SE section of the state. From about January to March, there are hundreds upon hundreds (literally) of bald eagles. It's amazing to just sit and watch them. Some photographers will feed them fish out on the beach, so the birds can eat and they can get shots like this one. There's also an "Eagle Lady" there, who keeps an eye out for them and feeds them in the winter. Thank you for asking! #722476
