Instinct told me something spooked them. As I slowed to get my camera ready, this beautiful bald eagle soared from a tree feet away from me to the other side of the canal. His wing span had to be at least six feet!
Seeing such beauty early in the morning creates a unique connection with nature, a connection that’s always there but rarely seen or felt. Feelings of awe and harmony fill the moment almost to the point of precluding taking the shot.
Looking for breakfast, this bird of prey stopped long enough for me to get a few pictures. I wonder if this creature could feel the connection, too.
