Every time we see one we are in awe
at their size, power, and majesty.

M & I have chosen to embrace new technology as it unfolds. I spent a good part of last year learning file management, which seems to be the heart of working with a computer. We are both gadget nuts, and always try to have a camera at our fingertips. This morning was a test. We were sitting down to eat when M said "Is that an Eagle"? I glanced over and saw a Bald eagle with a fish in it's talons swirling and dodging as several Gulls tried to steal the prize. Around and around they went in the gleaming sun before my very eyes as M changed a lens, fired up the camera and flew outside to try and get a shot. The tumbling mass of birds rolled straight at us and then whoosh,,,,they were gone over the cliff behind the house. The whole event probably took around eight seconds.
We were both shook up in a happy way. American Bald Eagles sightings are still new in our neck of the woods, having made a successful comeback only a couple of years ago. Every time we see one we are in awe at their size, power and majesty. A lot of times we just drop our jaws and look, letting our minds take the picture. If You are lucky enough to watch one, you will walk away with absolutely no question as to why they were revered by Native Americans and became our National Bird.
So,,,,shaky,,,,quick,,,,and mostly out of focus,,,,let me share with you a frozen slice of what we saw this morning. How can it not be a great day?
Eagles are seagulls with a good hairdo.
