Juvenile Bald Eagle!!!!

Roger spotted this juvenile bald eagle not 10 yards from the car, sitting on a stump in a little pond....but it flew up to this light pole before he could focus and shoot. I was able to get out of the vehicle and walk fairly close to get these...
You can click on each one to enlarge it...it was an overcast day so they are kind of grainy.
I have a hard time focusing in normal conditions so an overcast day is really tricky for me.
*********************
My MRI showed I had a tear in my rotator cuff...plus there was a thinning of it and also it showed some calcification. I see a specialist June 1, if all goes well. I have no idea what to expect.
**************
The toot and her mommy came down Thursday and spent the night...we did not make it a creek because we figured they were all still too high...and today in our rambling drive we did confirm that the ones close to here are way too high. There is one that is about half way between here and her house that would have been okay...so maybe next time we can meet there.

OH Rose, I'm sorry to hear about your rotator cuff problem... I'll keep you in my prayers. Keep me posted.

Love the pictures of the little eagle. I've been watching the eagles in their nest in Iowa. They are getting so big --but haven't fledged yet...

Hugs,
Betsy

These are fine shots of this juvenile eagle. That was a rare opportunity and you took good advantage of it. I hope your trip to specialist results in some relief and a good solution to the problem.

Very nice images. I know about that rotator cuff thing. It's no fun, but it does heal.

How wonderful that you were able to get so close to take a picture of this eagle!

I must have missed the post about you having an MRI done. I wish you well on your visit to the specialist on June 1st.

Sorry to hear you having trouble with your rotator cuff. I hope you can be helped.

Dark days make taking photos trickier than bright one, I think.

Wonderful eagle shots! So sorry to hear about the torn rotator cuff. Mike had that surgery a couple years ago.
