Juvenile Bald Eagle Stare

There is something almost intimidating about a large Bald Eagle staring right at you at close distance. The juvenile was busy feeding on a goose carcass laying on the left side of the frame. The ground is covered in a mixture of snow and feathers that it had been tearing off. It was such a great experience to watch them and photograph them in the snow on this cold winter day.

Nature photography has become a very passionate hobby of mine and whenever I get a chance I love to get outside and enjoy being outdoors. I am also the co-owner of KGM Expressions, a wedding and portrait photography business, with my wife Kim. This is how we make our living and I love that we get to do that together.
