A picture of power, grace and speed, Alaska's top 'fly fisherman' snatches his prey from the tranquil waters of an unnamed bay.
An Athabascan legend portrays bald eagles as the deliverers of people from famine. The myth goes that a prince who gave an eagle a salmon during time of plenty was repaid in the lean year that followed by grateful eagles who first dragged salmon, then sea lions, and eventually a whale to shore in gratitude for the prince's kindness.
The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the U.S.A.
