Random Five Friday

Joining Nancy at A Rural Journal for Random Five Friday.

1.) My friend, Bev, and I were just saying yesterday how ready we are for summer. We’ve had a few days of raw temps and below zero wind chills, so now, it’s time for summer…right?

2.) One morning, earlier this week, I glanced out our kitchen window and saw one of the eagles perched in our sycamore tree. The best picture I could get was through a window. Eagles are so skittish!

3.) Gypsy’s “picture of the week”. Motor Man took this with his cell phone. Yes, she’s completely in charge of the office and all who enter.

4.) Yesterday morning’s sunrise briefly colored our world in orange and gold and pink.

5.) I sure am missing these two.  Just two more reasons I’m ready for summer.

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).
