Artist's Description

It was snowing hard on Valentine’s Day, 2009, but we went out for a photo shoot anyway! When we got this shot, we were glad we’d braved the weather. The eagles were fishing on the Missouri River, near Hardy Creek. When we first spotted this eagle, he was sitting on this post on a rock outcropping, far above the river. He was watching the water with his “eagle eyes”. Of course I had to start walking toward him, taking photos as I went…

This is what happened when he opened his wings to fly.

This is the first time I’ve seen an eagle’s wings out stretched like this, with his talons still on his roosting place!

I was inspired by the incredible size and the wonder of this bird.
