Soaring Bald Eagle
Who doesn’t love seeing a magnificent eagle soaring above? It always gives me a thrill, even after seeing so many of these birds. I love the light on the back of this one, shining through the edge of his wings and making him shine! I had gone out, specifically looking for Bald Eagles and was not disappointed!
From Cornell Labs: “The Bald Eagle has been the national emblem of the United States since 1782 and a spiritual symbol for native people for far longer than that. These regal birds aren’t really bald, but their white-feathered heads gleam in contrast to their chocolate-brown body and wings. Look for them soaring in solitude, chasing other birds for their food, or gathering by the hundreds in winter. Once endangered by hunting and pesticides, Bald Eagles have flourished under protection.”
