my heart beat faster
as the regal eye of a Bald Eagle caught mine.
I have read that making them take off (fly away) costs them a great deal of energy (food) and particularly after this freeze i did not want to risk annoying him/her into flight. So i drove slowly, with the window down, and took some shots quickly, including a little video.
These are big pics so click to view large.
[ By the way, if you "right click" a picture and select "open in new tab" then click the new tab pic again you can get the giant size picture.]
short video at bottom of this post.
Here is what i saw as i approached the tree: do you see it?
