The Majestic Bald Eagle 2

Sunning himself at the far end of the lake

Yesterday was a gorgeous morning for a kayak ride at Lake Chillisquaque.  After not seeing the Bald Eagles for a couple of weeks, I was excited to see one of the adults perched on its favorite dead tree near the Goose Cove bird blind.  I had the lake to myself, and didn’t want to scare the eagle off, so I zig-zagged over towards him, keeping the sun at my back.  Success!  He let me get fairly close before taking off across the lake towards his nesting tree.

Getting closer!

Truly majestic pose

Too close. Time to fly!  I like the shadow cast by one wing onto the other.
