The Best Day Ever

la salle county, illinois

oh happy day!  my first eagle photo!

on our way home from town this morning richard and i spotted this beauty on the back road in a pasture. he (or she?) seemed to be a little bit off the beaten path , for an wintering eagle anyway, as i think they tend to stay near the river. we stopped to admire him for just a moment and then zoomed home to grab the camera. when we returned , he was still there. what a thrill!

whatever the reason this beautiful creature was brought to our neck of the woods, i’ll be forever grateful :).

have a great weekend!

    I’ve seen eagles on many occasions before, but never when I had a camera handy. You should (and I’m sure you do) count yourself lucky!

      yes! i certainly do appreciate my good luck. the wintering eagles here at starved rock are a big attraction and i feel so spoiled being able to have them practically living in my back yard.

      thanks for visiting :).

    GREAT SHOT! LOVE IT! If it’s a Bald Eagle, why does he have feathers? Does he belong to the Hair Club? Or maybe, is he the President of the Club?..LOL… Just kidding…Good shot.

      hi wayne,

      glad you found me! i felt very fortunate to get this shot; it will probably be a while before i get another opportunity like this one again.
