This American Bald Eagle would have preferred colder, nastier weather, but the light a sunny day sure made for a wonderful opportunity to catch some good light and details on the face and feathers. This eagle tolerated the sound of shutter clicks and car doors long enough to eat a fresh caught Kokanee Salmon for breakfast. This image was captured early one morning from the shores of Lake Coeur d'Alene near Post Falls, Idaho. Each year, the salmon come in high numbers to spawn which draws the eagles to take advantage of the food supply. It makes for a wonderful opportunity to see them in numbers.
