Eagle(s)

Roger wanted to get out a little yesterday...so we headed up to roam around Parke County....and this was the highlight of our day....isn't he handsome. I wasn't that far away from him....but those twigs in front of him make it hard to focus. I was slowly walking up closer to him when he took off....
Talk about a big bird...he seemed huge....and when he took off, he was just gone. We watched him go down the valley and then came back our way but off a ways to the side...and in the meantime I had noticed another one...a juvenile...and then there was another eagle, but all too far away. I could have stood there forever watching the three of them....I had been complaining that it had been a while since we had seen an eagle and then to see them two days in a row!!!
*************
I had intentions to visit blogs today but instead last night I discovered a few of my photos were missing from a particular day. I have my photos in folders by day taken...and part of the photos were there, but several weren't. I first checked to see if they were just missing in Picasa and maybe were on the computer but could not find them anywhere. I checked the external hard drive that I had used to transfer them....they were missing on it, also.

So I had to start up the old laptop and transfer them from it. And today in between other jobs I have been going through each folder for the XTi to try to make sure no more photos were missing...I found some that I thought were missing, and have gone through almost 11,000 photos and only found one that I cannot find anywhere...and with the folder it is in, it is nothing special.

I am trying to decide if I am going to do the rest...I probably will but going to take a break from it. I have close to another 10,000 photos from my original Rebel...I just cannot bear the thoughts of starting on those right away.

It was a beautiful day here....true shirt sleeve weather. I even have a daffodil blooming but did not take a photo of it. We had storms last night, but nothing major here where I live.

That eagle looks very majestic sitting in the tree and look at the wingspan on him, wow, he is a big bird.
10,000 pictures, phew I understand why you want a break. That's a lot of pictures.

Fine shots of the eagles. They are so majestic whether perched on a branch or especially in flight. I have been going back of photos on a couple of older hard drives that I had disconnected. Most are duplicates, but occasionally I find one I had missed somehow. It is so time consuming to check and avoid duplicating too much.

Once my weather clears here, I can't wait to go "in search of" here...they say they are close by!...:)JP

Wonderful eagle photos! Wow, you had a great sighting! And thank you so much for your comments on my piggy bank and the rodeo posts! Wow, you have a LOT of pictures to go through! But it will be fun, if time-consuming!

You got some really nice shots. Patti was sure she saw a bald eagle just up the road from us.

Mary said...

Any day you see 3 eagles is a great day :-) Great shots of them, too. You are more organized than I am with your photos. I need to go through a lot of mine and organize them better. It was good seeing you at the quilt show yesterday! Wish we could have had more time to talk.
