An Eagle Afternoon

Yesterday I went down to the shore to see what I could see (and, perhaps, capture a photo or two).

And what did I see?

Only an enormous Bald Eagle perched on a piling just off-shore. Looking for dinner, no doubt (worth a click to see the full size image).Eagle Afternoon 1A few short moments later this magnificent creature took flight and flew away, to who knows where.An Eagle Afternoon 2Oh what I wouldn’t have given for a stronger telephoto lens in that moment. Still, I was in the right place, at the right time, made the best use of the tools available to me, and came away with a fortunate capture.

I call that a success (and the colors and reflections aren’t half bad either 😉 ).

Happy Saturday wherever you are.
