....A Sky Watch That Goes

I took my wife to a nearby wetlands area to check on some wild swans and an eagle nest we saw last Tuesday. One Bald Eagle was sitting in a tree a long way off, see the header. It took off and flew almost over our head and I was able to catch it in flight. They are pretty fast when they want to be. To see a Bald Eagle in flight is breathtaking. Thanks to the people that sponser the Sky Watch Friday. Follow the link to the rest of the Sky Watch Friday Blogs.

They are beautiful in flight. Great capture. I've always liked that the tips of their wings look like fingers.

Super Mike. They are so regal! I love seeing them, and to have a pair nesting within sight is a real treat.
Have a happy Friday.
