For the past few years, I have taken a trip to Iowa to photograph Bald Eagles along the Mississippi River. This photo was taken in Rock Island, IL, just across the river from Iowa. Along the Mississippi are some of the best spots to take photos of Eagles as large numbers concentrate near the lock and dams during the winter. Needless to say, this area attracts a lot of photographers. You are always guaranteed to come home with some great shots. The Eagle pictured wasn't too concerned with me and was very accommodating for photos, but as you can see, he had his eye on me.
