Portrait of a Bald Eagle

My passion is for animal portraiture photography. On a recent trip to the Kenai Peninsula, I had the great experience of being around many Bald Eagles. I spent hours at various times of the day hanging out with these guys over a 4 day period. I truly feel that they became used to me and my camera gear being around them and they soon paid me no attention at all, but on this occasion I was able to get an eye to eye connection between myself and the eagle.
