Quick decisions

Bald Eagles below the dam  

Here is another photo from last weekend's action on the ice of the Mississippi in Guttenberg, Iowa. Sometimes nothing happened for several minutes and suddenly quick decision had to be made where to focus on and how to compose. I like having the dam in the background in some of my images. No matter how cold it is the water below is always open and it is the place where the eagles feed when the rest of the river is frozen over.
