2018 Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan | Steller’s Eagles Catching Fish

Mar 29 | Evan | No Comments |

Along with Chris Weston, I escorted a small group of wildlife photographers in Japan in search of Japan’s Winter Wildlife. View the 2018 Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan Trip Report to see photos of Japanese Snow Monkeys, Red Crowned Crane, Swan, Steller’s Sea Eagles and whatever else we could find!  This is the second of 3 posts about Steller’s Sea Eagles, one more about the eagles in Japan and then off to the Whooper Swans!

I mentioned in my previous post about the eagles how I love to watch them fly.  Their attack and capture is quite impressive as well! The Steller’s Sea Eagles approach is fast and efficient.  Even though I knew and could anticipate what they were going to do to some extent, photographing the eagles was not easy due to their speed and agility. Luckily we had enough boat rides and time with the eagles in Rausu for me to come away with a few images I was happy with!
