The end of May 2022, I was kayaking near Assawoman Wildlife Management area in southern Delaware when I noticed a Bald Eagle in a tree and what I thought may have been another Bald Eagle just disappear below the marsh grasses. I paddled up to around a bend with my camara ready and sure enough a Bald Eagle was in the water. I held the camera shutter down and watched as the eagle, with great effort, slowly lifted out of the water. It did not have a fish in its talons and seemed to struggle to get aloft, but did finally lift off and fly away. I still wonder if it ever saw or had a fish or if it was just going in for a dip or bath.
