Steller's sea eagle

There's Always Someone Waiting To Steal Your Fish

Steller's sea eagle - Rausu, Hokkaido, Japan (Sea of Okhotsk)

After the sun rose, we had more time out on the ice with the Steller's, white-tailed sea eagles, and crows. In this shot you see one eagle dropping a fish, a second eagle heading in for the catch, and a third eagle in waiting - just in case. There's always someone!

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.
