Eagles from Sunday drive

We were driving along a muddy old back road when Roger says, "What's that over there?'  I could not tell with my naked eye alone...I zoomed in as close as I could and saw that it was two Bald Eagles.  The one on the right is a juvenile.  It looks like its head is dirty, but if you click to expand the view, I think you can tell that it is not dirt.  We were also looking through Roger's spotter scope so we are sure of this.  This picture is cropped and is the best I could do...it will open up fairly big if you right click on it and click open in new window.

I have been sewing more today...am now to the last part of Lorelei's quilt:  flipping the binding to the back and sewing it down by hand.  And it is a good thing.  When we talked to her tonight she wanted to know if I had finished it yet!

Wonderful sighting! I would love to see two bald eagles in a field like this!

I meant to tell you how happy I was you visited piece-fulness and commented on the Tucson show. It always inspires me so much to go to a show!

How unusual to see the eagles on the ground, and a great picture of the two of them. So fun that Lorelei is looking forward to her quilt.
