From the highway


 Coming north from Terre Haute, I spotted this Bald Eagle over across the highway.  I had to do a double take to see that it was an eagle.  I went up to the next left turn lane and came back down the highway and pulled off to the side to get this photo.  It is a cropped version of the picture I took.  With my little point and shoot I was having a hard time seeing what I was getting.

A magnificent creature. I'd have to go up to Scotland to stand any chance of seeing an eagle - and they don't pose for photographs either!

You got a great picture. To me, an eagle is always reason enough to turn around to get a picture.

I've always wanted to see the Bald Eagle in nature. I've only seen him at the Zoo. Great pictures, Rose.
