Just For Fun
This majestic eagle, seen on the recently completed private yacht cruise in Alaska's Inside Passage, was caught in a comical pose. He had been performing for our cameras, swooping, catching fish, and generally feeling his oats. But when he turned to fly away, I happened to catch, well, not his best side. When I looked at this image, it struck me that his tail looked like a ballerina's tu-tu, and his feet were his toe shoes. And then to make it perfect, he turned his head as if asking "does this tu-tu make my butt look big?"
Now I will never be able to look at an eagle's tail the same way again!
