Squint. Or, Just Take My Word For It.

There's an eagle in this picture. The resolution of my cameraphone isn't high enough to permit enlargement, but trust me, it's there. There is a colony of great blue heron nests among those tall trees in the distance, and with them is the colossal nest of a bald eagle. Moments after I took this, it took off after one of the herons, who clearly had something in its bill, and chased it for a short while. It was dramatic and majestic. I was gobsmacked. And I stood there, just watching, cameraphone in hand, somewhat bitterly wishing I had my camera. But so grateful to be present.
