Reminiscing about the Bald Eagle





















Okay, I'm done complaining about my bird drought. Today I am reminiscing about the Bald Eagle I photographed last winter. I'll be looking for them again.....

Wow, that's quite a shot and that eagle looks so huge perched atop that carcass.

Beautiful shot...couldn't have asked for a better perch

The Thoreau quote on your header is one of my favorites!
The acceptance by a natural creature greater than any man-given honor.

We saw loons on our trip west a few weeks ago, to northern Washington. I miss them so.
It reminded me that I can see them much more easily by driving due north.
Eagles, too!
A nice reminder.

I do hope your eagles come back. Not only for your sake, but so we can see those great pictures.

Kathie - he was a nice size bird!

jayne - thank you!

Birdlady - I hope so too. I know where the spot is where a person drops off road kill for them to feed upon - so I'll be waiting....

T&S - Thanks so much!

Lynne - Gracias!!

Nina - So glad you like my Thoreau quote and appreciate the sentiment!

Wendy - think I can get better ones this year as I'm beginning to master my camera better.

NC - from your mouth to God's ears!

GREAT SHOT Shelley! What a fantastic bird.

Nick S said...

Looks like you got pretty close and he was too engrossed in that poor Deer to fly away :-)
Hope you see more, and I'll be looking out for some here too !

Leedra said...

This one is worth a bird drought, but we forget what we have already seen. We want action daily.

Shelly: Wonderful shot of the Eagle, I would like to get that close to one. My friend at the lake saw one on the shore last week. That's what I want when I have my camera.
