This morning as I was driving home from the farm,
I spotted what looked like an eagle sitting on a roof-top!
|I pulled off the side of the highway,|
and grabbed a shot!
|It wasn't very clear,|
so I switched lenses,
and walked around to get a closer look.
|Cars going by didn't seem to bother him...|
I guess that's a different story!
|They each had a feeder that they claimed...|
|...And fights would ensue if they tried to get nectar|
from the "wrong" feeder!
|One fight must have lasted at least 5 minutes!|
Usually it's really hard to catch a good shot of them,
because they are so fast.
|Their little bodies have been "bulking up"|
for their flight further south,
and I guess the added weight slows them down a bit.
They are a good reminder to me
that I, too, can move better when I don't carry too much weight!
Hebrews 12:1-2 says,
"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded
by so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which so easily ensnares us,
and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
looking unto Jesus,
the author and finisher of our faith,
who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross,
despising the shame,
and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
