White-tailed sea eagle - Rausu, Hokkaido, Japan (Sea of Okhotsk)
This shot is a close-up of a white-tailed sea eagle; this image makes me think it's ready for a showdown.
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
