Shortly after I retired in 2007 my friend Bob Gay invited me to join him and some friends in photographing bald eagles at Homer, Alaska. I took Bob up on his offer and I’m sure glad I did. The photography was astounding. I returned in 2008 and 2009. In 2009 I also took several boat trips across the bay from Homer to photograph bald eagles there. Thanks to the abundance of eagles there I have never photographed a species as much as I have bald eagles. Those trips were experiences I will always remember.
