Steller's sea eagle - Rausu, Hokkaido, Japan (Sea of Okhotsk)
I don't think an eagle likes to get its feathers wet (or, cold and heavy). This eagle struggled a bit to get out of the water after it slipped in for a fish. But, it made it out. That was close!
This was taken on a trip meant solely for photography. We traveled to Tokyo and then took a domestic flight to the northernmost island of Japan (Hokkaido). On Hokkaido, we had vehicles to take our group to various places for photography. There were two trip guides but we arranged the trip through wildlife photographer Jon Cornforth
