The sun had set, and we were heading home when we got fantastic views of this Dipper washing and preening in the shallow water of a beck. I had actually put my camera away, but he stayed quite obliging whilst I got my camera out and snapped a few shots!
This glorious image simply entitled “Soaring Eagle” from @tracey.lund.7 is one our nominated birdlife images. A beautiful composition! “Over on the Shiretoko Peninsula in the port town of Rausu is where we first saw the Steller’s sea eagle. The sky was full of eagles and it was truly a magnificent experience to see these stunning eagle soaring through the sky. The challenge was the weather and trying not to freeze the equipment. Trying to capture the bird in flight at the right moment was also a challenge.” Tracey used a @canonuk EOS 7D Mark II, EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM @ f/10, 1/1250, ISO 640. 🦅👌😎
