Eagle in Flight

Standing beside a bridge yesterday, hoping to see some ducks in the water below, I reminded myself that nothing would be flying about in such weather as the winds were very strong and I had even felt the push of it while driving. However, when deciding to return to my car I glimpsed an Eagle in the distance.
It became larger in my view as it came closer and then crossed the highway.


I managed to get a few photos before it flew from my sight.

Driving home I saw it again a few kilometers up the road and this time it was lower in the sky and almost directly overhead.

The Eagle having flown from my sight once more, I continued on my drive but when turning a corner and nearing another bridge I saw it again and had one more opportunity for pictures.

Beautiful pictures! And so clear and detailed! How nice of him to keep following you and letting you capture these great shots. Each one is perfect. I like the curve on his wings in that last shot near the head....it is so symetrical it looks like you could fold the picture in half for a perfect match.

I like your symetrical observation, I never thought of that but you're right. I like the way its feet are tucked in.

I didn't notice the feet before! That does look neat.

It was a treat to see an Eagle, and I think that I was very fortunate to see it three different times.

Thank you all for your comments; they are much appreciated.
