I Got Him, I Got Him!!!!

Hello!
Sorry I haven't been around lately, I am nursing a cold that we seem to keep passing around the house. 
 I feel a bit better today but still stuffed up and now my voice is gone.

I wanted to share my joy with you today.
On my morning drive out to the lake, I spotted that elusive Bald Eagle that I have been trying to get decent photos of.

I turned into a little parking lot, quickly grabbed my camera and to my delight, he landed in one of the trees that surrounded the parking area.


They are so magnificent and just amazing.


Everything about them is so majestic.


The sun was out this morning 


and I think that he was fishing


from high atop the trees,


a great view of the waters all around him.


I think he picked a pretty good spot.
He could see the Lake Michigan, the channel and the smaller lake, a perfect place where all the fish seem to congregate.


I love watching them and I could have sat there all day I think.
Although my sneezing and blowing of my nose might have been a bit distracting. :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will see you next week!

Doesn't it make your heart beat a little faster when you see a bald eagle? We have a few around here, and I tend to see them in pairs. One flew right across the road in front of me last weekend, carrying something in his talons ... lunch, I presume.

Sorry you've been sick! And isn't it the coolest thing ever to be able to watch and photograph an eagle?! They give me goosebumps every time I see one. Beautiful photos, thanks for sharing, and feel better!!!

AWESOME! We have a bald eagle that frequently circles the lake in front of the marina I am working at this winter. Unlike you, I have not been able to get a good picture though.

I hope that you feel better soon! You need to start drinking some green tea and taking antioxidants;) Take care of yourself my friend:)

Hugs!

I don't know if it is menopause or what, but I am crying looking at this magnificent beast. No, I don't think it's menopause after all. God's nature is what it is:

STUNNING and CAPTIVATING to the human soul.

Be well dear one. Anita

Fabulous shots Michelle! They are truly amazing birds. I have a few shots of one that I got recently. It was chasing an osprey with a fish! I will have to post them so you can see! It was very exciting :)

You are one lucky girl.
I've only seen one ... one time in my life:) I know they are around here every so often but i've never seen one....:) Lucky!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

Privet and Holly said...

Hey sweet girl ~
Hope you are feeling
much better. I also
see eagles when I am
driving along the road
from our street to town.
It runs parallel to Lake
Minnetonka and my
daughter and I never
cease to catch our breaths
when we see an Eagle.
Unlike you, I never seem
to have my camera at
the ready. One of these
days I need to just pull
over and park and try
to get THAT shot : ) Yours
are just gorgeous!!!

xx Suzanne
