Last week was a great week for bird photos.
My neighbor across the street called me up and said,
"Esther, I know you'll want to see this.
Bring your camera.
There's an eagle in the tree in my back yard!"
|I could hardly believe it!|
I'd been running to the lake on the other side of town to get pictures of eagles,
and here was a big one right on the edge of our neighborhood duck pond!
|It made him a little nervous as I went in closer and closer|
to try for some great shots,...
|...And off he flew!|
|Just a couple of days later I spotted a large bird high in a tree top|
as my husband and I were on our way home from Searcy County.
|My husband graciously pulled over so that I could "zoom in".|
|The large bird seemed unafraid, and just looked at us|
until my husband got out of the truck and made some noise...
|...so that I could get a photo of him in flight.|
|A red-tailed hawk is what my husband thinks this is...|
What do you think he is?
Majestic! That's for sure!
|Just before the Marion County line we encountered these turkeys.|
"Walk on left facing traffic!"
...I don't think these wild turkeys had heard that line!
Thanks for stopping by!
And in case you're wondering,
I came back from a blogging break on Rock4Today.
