We were heading down on a trip to visit a friend and on the side of the road was:
He was eating road kill and then took off in a wonderful, wide wing-spreaded flight!
A glorious sight!:
This is an over-exposed shot of him on the side of the road, right before he flew:
(I was in a hurry. It was very sunny....so I just shot the shot from my camera, no time to make adjustments!)
When he took off, he soared and soared above my head. I thanked him for letting me take his photo, but I was also a little scared he was going to land on my head with those claws!:
Here is a little blurry version of a closeup:
Look at the wingspan and those feathers!!:
And those white tailfeathers fanning out!:
One gorgeous, huge eagle:
I know they can be mean and kill other animals.
But I am still in awe of this majestic breed of birds.....
and I was SO happy to catch one on camera that day.
- The Retired One
- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
