An Eagle

Last Thursday, with frost pending the next morning, Little Bit and I decided to spend the last warm day taking a drive. 

Our beloved gravel road welcomed us and for some reason, it seemed a little more expansive than usual.


A half a mile later, we spotted this sweet soul enjoying a cool down from the day’s heat. 

As soon as we got to the river, I parked and got out to take some pictures. The scene was stunning. The blue of the sky and the  leaves floating by, nearly took my breath.

However, the real surprise came when I decided to video the wind’s soothing song. That’s when something glided into my view. It took a second for it to register what I was seeing: 

  • elegant entrance
  • white tail
  • a black body 
  • Oh my gosh, is that a white head? 

Wow! Talk about a treat! I almost fell over when I realized that it truly was an eagle. 

(If you zoom into the video a little bit, you can see him come in from the top left, head towards the middle of the water, then come up and land in a tree, downstream on the left.)
