    Thats beautifal. Thanks for sharing. I have friends on that lake that watch the Eagles all the time. I grew up over by there and we had an Eagle come every year for 3 weeks at a time. It stayed in our trees in our pasture and was quite the site to watch him swoop down and find snakes and mice in our pasture. Back in the day when there were nice pictures on the phone books he made the cover a few times.

    Oh my goodness, what a great story. I would be just as excited as Zeke was taking those pictures. Absolutely gorgeous. And to think the guy on the back of his pick up truck had no idea.

    That was wonderful. Thanks for sharing. We have eagles at the lake south of town. I love it when they are there. So wonderful to watch.

    It must have been a sight to see!

    We have a bird rehab center here, they often invite the public to the bird releases. Many of the birds are bald eagles. After attending a few of the events, I can attest to the fact that they are HUGE birds!

    And there's already a pair of eagles fixing last year's nest! Loved the pictures and seeing the little eagles grow. Hard to believe it takes five years for them to acquire all their white head feathers.

    Butterflywing, thanks so much for sharing! Occasionally we do see bald eagles here in southwestern Minnesota on a fly-through, but it's rare in our area. Zeke's photography is awesome!
