The Maine I Love - Don Dunbar

Photographs by Don Dunbar

By The Editors
Self-taught photographer Don Dunbar of Eastport has always been drawn to the beauty of the natural world. He spent a lot of time outdoors while growing up, capturing amazing images with his eyes and saving them in his memory. He took up photography so he could share these insights with others. “Having patience and a passion for the subject allows me to wait for just the right moment to click the shutter,” he said. “I hope the image will speak to the viewer and evoke the same emotion that I felt.” The American bald eagle is one of Dunbar’s favorite subjects. “They are amazing to watch and can be seen many places around my home. During the winter I sit in a blind, sometimes 8 to 10 hours, waiting for just the right shot. In this photograph the eagle was quite close and trying to figure out where the clicking noise was coming from.” Don Dunbar can be reached at
