Sea Eagles - talon clasping

Taken from the ship as it passed close to the land, this is a sequence of shots taken of two sea eagles. Talon clasping is a pair bonding behaviour practised by adult mates and also by female birds and their young juveniles. It's hard to tell, but I think these are both adult birds. In birds of prey, the larger bird is invariably the female.
