When I'm not writing and doing a gazillion other things, I try to fit a little time in each month to go through the masses of digital photos I've collected over the years. A lot of the older photos need cleaning up, which is why I only get through a dozen or so at a time. These are a few of the eagle images I found in my latest search. Well, some I've pulled before, but I hadn't properly organized them, so they have resurfaced. All of these eagles are perched on a wildlife tree next to my old house, so there were a lot of opportunities to capture these amazing creatures.
I'm a little obsessed with eagles. I find them fascinating and beautiful, and of course each unique in personality. Like the one in the first photo above; just sitting there minding his (or her) own business and trying to figure out what the silly human is doing.
Whenever an eagle landed on any one of the trees near the house, I stopped what I was doing and I either took a few pictures or just sat and watched. Most of the time they would rest and gaze at the world around them. A lot of times they would hunt in the lake, waiting for an unsuspecting fish or duck.
Even Nara, my beloved best bud, would lay on the deck and watch them. She didn't bark; just watched.
Did you know that bald eagles usually mate for life, and they both share in the raising and feeding the young? How romantic.
Back to writing! I expect to have the first sneak peeks of the new book to share soon.
