PIC OF THE WEEK: 09/18/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA • James River near Varina
Notes: Part of the enjoyment, for me, in my photography endeavors is the thrill of the hunt. This is followed closely by the progress that comes with experience. This photograph from a recent Discover The James Bald Eagle Tour was a testament to that fact. Despite the less than perfect lighting conditions, I still managed to come home with a few all time favorite pictures (to date). Even with out the newly captured images, the trip provided camaraderie with friends, captain and partner. And as a bonus we got to witness over a dozen Atlantic Sturgeon breaches, which is part of their spawning ritual. These are a very large variety of fish who’s evolution dates back over two million years. They have been under a fishing moratorium since 1998 that will likely last for twenty more years. Their numbers declined due to overfishing. Several of the Sturgeon we saw were well over six feet long and weighed in excess of one hundred pounds. Watching them leap several feet into the air was amazing. Later on the boat ride home, we saw a total of nine immature Bald Eagles and two adults in the sky at one time. It was inspiring to see these two amazing species slowly recovering from extremely low population numbers.
