How fortunate to see a majestic eagle flying right over our house!

You can see an Eagle over and over and the same feeling comes. Beauty in all its form. Have a great day.

Great pic Diane, these guys are as common as crows in our neck of the woods, we have a nesting pair that raises a family each year on the hillside behind us. So much fun watching the eaglettes learn how to maneuver those wings! Deb xo

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

WOW! Diane I'm so thankful you had your camera at the ready (good birder that you are)!
They are such a majestic bird aren't they and you must have got such a thrill when you sighted him.
Have fun in beautiful Florida this week my friend - any hikes planned for you both?
Hugs
Shane
PS we must do another postcard soon, having said that I;m working every day for the next couple of weeks after that I'll email you. x

Beautiful shots of the eagle! I also like your new header. Amazing photo!

Oh what a thrill! So glad you and your hubby walked out when you did!

These are nice pictures of the eagle, Diane. It's really hard to get the big birds (hawks, eagles, geese, seagulls) while they are in motion, but I think you succeeded!

Have a lovely day.
