Kcihpolakon (eagle)

by: Nate Gaffney

This photograph was taken in Mahone Bay, NS in the morning in early Spring. The juvenile eagle in the photo lept from a branch and stared at me with the expression captured in the photograph. If it weren't for being in the right place at the right time, I wouldn't have captured this eagle or the light that fell onto its face, revealing that fierce look.

The film was selected to be screened at The Atlantic Film Festival (FIN). He has made documentaries for The Government of New Brunswick and Ulnooweg Education, among others.
