Wild Wednesday, Bald Eagle

Zach and I went to Maine last year in October, and while we were there, we took a nature cruise off the coast of Bar Harbor. We had intended to go on a Humpback Whale and Puffin tour, but the ocean was too rough to go beyond the breaker and the Puffins had already migrated. We visited some of the islands and peninsulas that are a part of Acadia National Park. We saw seals, loons, and this amazing Bald Eagle.

The little black speck in the water is a seal. The boat was moving so much it was hard to get a good picture, and we couldn't get too close to the rocks because of the rough waters. It was at this point in the trip when the captain told us that the water was "two minute water"... That's how long you'd live before you died of hypothermia.
