I cannot believe I done skipped a day posting...maybe this is going to be the new me...skipping days all the time.
Anyway, how about this fellow/gal?
We went for a little drive Sunday--just checking out the fishing spots. At the tailwaters of the dam, Roger asked if I wanted to drive on back...I said it doesn't matter.
He said well, we never know what we will see, and he had not driven 20 or 30 feet when he spotted this eagle. I got out of the Rav and started walking back. The eagle just sat. I don't think I ever got to where there was no little limbs in front of him. But they aren't too bad in these. He finally took off and flew down the creek and lit on the other side.
I took this one across the creek...he had not gone very far. He did not set there as long this time, but flew back up the creek and lit in another tree on the other side. It is/was just thrilling to think we did not scare him so bad that he took off for good.
All three of these photos are cropped and grainy, but still thrilled to get them. It was so dark and cloudy, I had my ISO set at 1600....plus I have fiddled with these in Picasa.
