Photographer: Russ Rockwood, Mukilteo

Photo taken: April 21, a few miles north of Lund, British Columbia

Photographer’s description: “[I call this] ‘Local Picking Up Lunch.’ Canon 5D, 28-200mm. Out on a friend’s boat enjoying the sights and wildlife.”

Expert says: “The photographer was using a long lens to capture this beautiful eagle fishing for dinner, and probably a fast shutter speed because there is no blur in the image — the eagle is absolutely tack sharp. An overcast day created the nice, even light in this photograph.” (See it in color, online at seattletimes.com/traveloutdoors) — Barbara Kinney, Features picture editor, The Seattle Times
