Out to Lunch
Such a nice photo. A beautiful bald eagle sitting on a stout cottonwood limb, fish lunch clasped firmly in its talons.
But, oh my, it could have been so much better. Just a minute before I took this photo, a juvenile eagle has been sitting right next to it on the same limb.
I stopped the car and got out to take a memorable photograph. The limb stuck out over the highway a bit and just as I raised my camera, a passing vehicle honked at me and .....off flew the juvenile.
Ah, well, this one is pretty good after all.
