This is an image from a post I made several years ago when living in Washington state. It was an incredible encounter I had one day with wildlife in action while walking the beach in Port Townsend. I couldn't believe my luck when a bald eagle suddenly swooped down out the blue and attacked a river otter very close to where I was standing. I had only a pocket point and shoot which I fumbled out of my shirt, but got a few shots off as the eagle pounced from the top of the rock toward the otter, which had a fish in its jaws, at the bottom of the rock. The otter darted into the sea and out of sight just in time. It all happened so quickly I felt lucky to get even this, but it was an exciting few minutes, to be sure.
Omaha Lens is an effort to record and post images about day-to-day life seen through the lens of my camera, both in and around the Omaha area of the U.S heartland and from my travels elsewhere.
Hope you enjoy your visit.
