2017 Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan | Steller’s Sea Eagles Catching Fish

Mar 29 | Evan | No Comments |

Even with subfreezing temperatures and early morning starts on a boat, our small group of photographers touring Japan was having a great time in Rausu.  The Steller’s Sea Eagles were not disappointing at all and whether hanging out or flying through the sky, the eagles provided ample photographic opportunities for our guided tour of Japan’s Winter Wildlife.

Of course one of the more dynamic parts of photographing the eagles was when the Steller’s Sea Eagles would swoop down from the sky and capture it’s prey!   Capturing the moment while having the eagles not going away from me (got plenty of photos of eagle butts) was somewhat challenging but we had plenty of time and opportunities to create these photos of the eagles in Rausu.

In collaboration with Magic Is Photo Safaris, I escorted a small group of wildlife photographers for a Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan in search of Japanese Snow Monkeys, Red Crowned Crane, Swan, Steller’s Sea Eagles and whatever else we could find!  To see more photos from our photo safari in Japan, view the 2017 Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan Trip Report.
