Yesterday was just like a spring day! the sun was shining very brightly and warm. There were pools of water created from melting snow along the streets and the sky was a beautiful blue and its spaciousness was like an invitation for flight. I was lucky to see this Eagle sighting.
In the morning when we left home to go shopping for groceries in a nearby community about 28-30 kilometers away, I had a hopeful feeling of maybe we would see something special! We were almost to the town of our destination when I suddenly realized I had forgotten to take my daily morning medications. So,I said to my husband, "We have to go back home to take my pills" and so we did after a bit of discussion related to my neglect. Just as we were leaving the secondary road and turned onto the highway that goes past my house my husband saw it, the Eagle!! soaring high in the sky! It was so beautiful and majestic.! I took the pictures from the cab of our moving truck. I only had my smallest zoom lens on my Canon Rebel. a Canon 55-250 mm. IS. But it was sufficient:with cropping and using the sharpening and lightness features on Photoshop I am able to post these photo results this morning.
The head and tail of this Eagle looked so white and clean, it might have been an ad for a laundry detergent.
laundry powder with the strength of an Eagle's flight,
it will keep your feathers both clean and white
the white of eagles seen are not always so crisp and sparkling white looking.
Just look at the dingy scruffiness of this eagle portrait that I had taken a couple of months ago in December, 2011. Just look at that white ???? tail! in the photo above That bird needs some 'Eagle Power Powder' to launder its tail to make it 'as white as snow.
Its a day of softly falling snow here today. I have a good book that should take care of the rest of the day. hope everyone has a great one!
