In Hokkaido, Japan, the drifting ice outside the port of Luojing is not frozen in the local area but is "floating" from the Sea of Okhotsk. Because of the many planktons which attracted a large number of aquariums and the seabirds. Seabirds are an endangered species. Haliaeetus pelagicus is the most famous one, there are also white-tailed sea eagle, dragonflies, and seagulls in the area. At 5:30 in the morning, I took the icebreaker to the drifting area. The seabirds are flying, fishing and fighting between the morning lights and shadows. I use long shots to take more vivid photos.
