Eagle (Eye)

Yesterday morning, as Motor Man and I finished breakfast, he glanced out the window and saw this:

An eagle perched on the pilings at the marina. I used the “long lens” to take the picture, and then cropped it. So he wasn’t nearly as close as it appears.

When I uploaded these photos, my first thought about this next one is that it looks as though he’s praying. (For our country, perhaps?)

I heard a boat approaching from upriver (to my left). The eagle heard it too. I knew he’d soon be taking flight, so I was ready.

There he goes… (you should be able to click on the picture to check out those talons).

I’m so glad my hubby has an “eagle eye” (sorry, but you were probably expecting that).
