Nature clicks #76 - Bald Eagles at Mississippi dam #14

Got it!

I finally made it to Mississippi lock and dam #14 in Le Claire, Iowa today. Light and weather conditions were as good as yesterday. There were not as many birds as at dam #12 on Saturday but the location is so much better because of the unobstructed view and the eagles are usually much closer.

This is my favorite photo from today. You can't see the fish the Bald Eagle just caught but I like the dynamic of this hunting scene and the spray of the water behind the eagle. There was more than just the Bald Eagles today but this will be another post hopefully tomorrow.
