Juvenile Bald Eagle in Flight

best juvenile eagle in flight (2)

“Eagles: When they walk, they stumble. They are not what one would call graceful. They were not designed to walk. They fly. And when they fly, oh, how they fly, so free, so graceful. They see from the sky what we never see.”

Rocky Mtn - Thank you!!

Pam - That is so sweet of you to say! My hubby is a better spotter of eagles than I am. Simon is probably better than the both of us!

benny & patsy - I think the same thing regarding freedom!

Mildred - thanks!

Leedra - is there anything better?

Darla - well said on eagles soaring alone!

Country girl - thank you!

Denise - I have to bring my binoculars everywhere just to make sure I'm making the right bird i.d.

Betsy - they are beautiful in flight!

Nature loving - thank you! I only wish I could've gotten the front view as opposed to the rear - lol!

Sharkbytes - you are so kind - thank you, thank you!

Natural Moments- to have the determination and freedom of the eagle would be a blessing indeed!

Melissa - can you imagine the views from up there?! :)

Tina - they just seem to do this beautiful dance when they are flying, soaring and gliding!

Cyndi - thank you for saying so!

Spooky - you are a sweetie! :)

I thought I left a message - I swear I did - I don't know how your page got overlooked!!! I remember seeing the eagle & saying how beautiful it is!!!

Well, I apologize - but stop by my page, I have a surprise for you!

Shellmo said...

Bill - thank you! At a neighboring lake - they have a returning eagle pair every year. This past summer - 2 of their babies were "fishing" on our lake - incredible to see!

Ms. Hays - thank you!!!
