Bald Eagle


she flew in front of me
wings spread wide
gliding


landed on a tree quite close
 a feathered being of the sky


an obvious queen
there is no denying


we are in the midst of a 3 day snow storm

this sweet little creek photo was taken before the storm began
I think we have 8" so far, two more days to go

I think winter is showing off at this point ;-)

  1. Winter is definitely showing off! I love the little creek before the big snowstorm! Wonderful shots of the eagle. I especially love the second one! Keep warm in your lovely snug home during the snowstorms!

    1. Fun that you enjoyed the second image, the eagle facing away and the crows which are good size birds, but look small next to the eagle.
      Thank you Sandra.

  2. The snow gives you a lot of work (taking lots of pictures) and we really enjoy watching it.
    Have a good one, Tammye!

    1. Yes, I think I moved snow for an hour today and it has not stopped coming down today.
      Tomorrow I will spend another hour plowing in a truck and shoveling.

  3. Now how could you have a bad day after an encounter like that? That is a serious amount of snow to be sure, but nothing you haven't seen before I suspect.

    1. It always is nice to see an eagle and later in town I spied two eagles high up in a cottonwood tree, too far to photograph, yet still a joy to see.

  4. Now you must tell me how you know it's a "she"! Great photos of the eagle, Tammie. I think we get your storm tomorrow night into Friday. Gusty winds, too. Winter magic!

    1. So I could be wrong Barb, but she was huge and I read that the females are 30% larger than the males.... So I am guessing.
      It has not stopped snowing here today, slow and steady. It is beautiful. Not dramatic though, as I am not getting the winds. Only drama I have is when a tree releases it's snow and it crashes to earth. I love watching that. Wishing you a fun storm.
