Wonder if they even saw each other???

Yesterday was one of those wonderful days...sunshine...blue skies...not too cold. And for being in the middle of the day, the lighting was not as bad as it normally is. So, we headed out for a drive...we chose to go north. I got a surprise when I downloaded the picture above...I had not noticed the plane at all...Roger first called it Almost a Collision...or something like that...then he said, being funny, 'wonder if they saw each other?'
This is the backwaters of the Wabash River...we saw quite a few coots..no really good shots though. This one was almost a good 'Bottoms Up' shot...you might have to click and enlarge to see it...
There are a couple buzzards on top of the barn...spreading their wings. I like the barn anyway.
This was the prize of the day..not so much the photograph but what it is a photograph of. It is an eagle...a juvenile from the white on his chest.

I would love to know how high he was...he was way, way up there and still looked so huge. To us, his wings look too big for his body. I told Roger that I don't know why, but when they are up so high, they look so much larger to me than the ones I have seen closer to the ground. I would love to know why that is.

Looks like you had a lovely drive yesterday, Rose. So did I. LOL

Isn't it interesting how you get so focused on a subject that you can miss other stuff in the photo...until you download the photos onto your computer?

You got some great pictures on your drive north. I really like photo of the eagle, but your 'bottoms up' picture is neat as well.

Every one of these is a "keeper," Rose...you did well on your drive! I love that first shot; isn't that funny how when you get the photo in the computer you see things you hadn't seen when taking the picture?

I like the ducks, the old barn and the juvenile, too!

Lots of wonderful finds Rose!
I'm envious of the eagle.
My Mom said one was spotted just a few miles from where she lives last week. I've wanted to go drive around the area - just in case. :)
That first shot is cool - natural and artificial flight so to apeak.

All you needed in that first one was Superman :-) Great shot! Love the old barn.
