Raptors in the Flint Hills of Kansas: Hawk Country on New Year's Day

A magnificent Bald Eagle sat in the Eagle Tree this morning and i wanted to bring a steak offering in exchange for the beauty of sun lighting up the Grand head.
As i'd approached the eagle tree, i looked, as always for a raptor; the tree is one mile from my house and as i neared, i realized there was indeed a bird there-- but it was growing larger, LARGER in my sight-- an eagle!? Yes!

I was on a tight schedule (sigh) and only grabbed 2 distance pics. However, on the way home i took the following photos of a red-tailed hawk between the eagle tree and the homestead.

The untouched photos (canon) are followed by a few altered posters and the sunset is from this past week.
Click on the pic to view large please.
