Perched eagle

March eagle

One of these days when I see an eagle in a tree I hope I’ll have time and patience to park myself nearby and wait until I can catch it in flight. Lately the only ones I’ve seen on the wing have gotten away by the time I’ve whipped out and pointed my camera. In the meantime, I’m still always delighted to see these formidable birds.

  1. It would be indeed impressive to photograph an eagle inflight with wings outspread but this photo is equally impressive.

  2. Back with a favorite poem that I love to teach to young kids…

    The Eagle
    By Alfred, Lord Tennyson

    He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
    Close to the sun in lonely lands,
    Ringed with the azure world, he stands.
    The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
    He watches from his mountain walls,
    And like a thunderbolt he falls.
