Guess what we saw today???/

We took a little round about drive today...my throat is scratchy and I did not feel like sitting at home. So, we stopped at Mansfield, and headed home via back roads. I had been watching all day for an turkeys and/or an eagle. No luck with the turkeys...but we were easing along a road between Bridgeton and Mansfield and this big handsome fellow took off from right beside our Rav...
I was so startled I could not react quick enough. He literally had flown right over the top of the Rav....he had to have been sitting in the tree right beside the road, but I had been watching the other way never expecting one to be right there next to the road.

I was literally shaking with excitement so bad I could not hold my camera still! I don't know why I do that sometimes...

Oh, and by the way, even though his mouth is open, he was not making a sound....

I get that same feeling every time we see them here. Love that top shot, soaring through the sky.

Good for you to catch a couple shots of him! When we're on the backroads, I'm always watching the distance instead of seeing what's right up close, til it moves! I've missed many a shot. lol.

Wonderful! I would have still been getting the camera turned on and missed it totally.

It is always exciting to see an eagle. We saw an eagle yesterday, while on a drive. My camera was in the back seat, so I didn't get an opportunity to take a picture. It was a glorious site though, as is yours.

Wow, those are awesome! Don't see that everyday!

Just to see them is awesome! I'm hoping I can another chance in my lifetime. You're lucky that you know a place close by to go to on the chance one will appear. :)
