Title: Business Meeting
Description: While heading out to find Humpbacks in Juneau, we came across a navigational buoy occupied by stellar sea lions. Sitting atop was a bald eagle with aptly named "Eagle glacier" in the background. As this huge male swam close the other male vacated the buoy. I captured the dominant male as he lunged out of the water to assume his rightful place on the throne, seemingly with the enthusiasm and approval of the females already there.
