The Eagle

It's thanks to MaryBeth of Stanwood DP that I got this shot of a bald eagle surveying his territory. This post of hers prompted a conversation between us that resulted in her invitation to show me where the good eagle spots are. Voila! Thanks again, MaryBeth!

Although he's in a tree, whenever I see a bald eagle I'm reminded of the poem "The Eagle" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson:

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.


  1. Great shot. I am glad you had a good visit with MB she is a nice lady. I love that poem.

  2. The Eagle has landed. Nice shot it is.

  3. Following your comment in Moscow blog: and then the nurses will come and observing all the honors, will led me into a madhouse. I am still laughing, loudly and heartily to your comment...

  4. Fantastic shot! I'm jealous. We used to see bald eagles in south Florida, but I never was able to get a good shot of one!

  5. This is a great shot...I'm so glad you two were able to connect!!
