Artist's Description

Featured in Birds of Prey

This magnificent bird, sometimes called a fish eagle because it only eats fish, and dives spectacularly into the water to capture its prey with its strong talons, fishes fresh water lakes and salt water bays and inlets around the world. Although widely distributed throughout the world, they can be difficult to find, and harder still to photograph. I am fortunate to see this bird fairly often on my visits to Pender Island, near Vancouver and Victoria, Canada, where this image was captured on a Nikon D700 with a Nikkor 600 mm lens and 1:4 teleconverter mounted on a Gitzo monopod using these settings: ISO 1000, EV -0.33, WB manual, aperture f5.6, shutter speed 1/1000 s.
