Bald Eagle Delight

Here are a few of the many pictures I took yesterday.
On a short drive north of town,we came across two Bald Eagles
who were most photogenic.
This first picture is taken on a friends yard.
The Eagle was sitting directly behind the house.
The following pictures show one bird as he prepares for lift-off.
This was a false start. The wings slightly raised poised for take-off. And lift-off.
A few powerful strokes of those massive wings and away he goes.
Gliding into the sky.
Needless to say,I was more than thrilled to be able to capture these shots.
God's laughter is heard in the song of birds.


  1. Yep, I would have been more than excited too. Great captures. Love them all.

  2. The photos of the take off of the eagle are so beautiful! And i love the verse you posted today - so true!!!

  3. What a great bird. I would die if I saw one in the wild. Hard to belive that man almost wiped them off the plant. Great picture

  4. Ruth: Stunning photoss of a wonderful bird, I have heard where one is near and will try to capture it on the camera.

  5. I can understand why you were thrilled to get these pictures -- they're great. What a thrill it must be to see this in person.

  6. Wow Ruth... I know you were THRILLED to get these shots. They are incredible... Thanks so much!!!


  7. What a wonderful set of pictures Ruth. You did a marvelous job! A fantastic bird.

  8. Majestic... purely majestic!

  9. Thank you for sharing these pictures! Absolutely gorgeous ~ how great to capture the flight sequence! Kayaking last summer my husband and I saw two adult bald eagles fly over the lake and land in a pine near us. I just about fell out of the kayak trying to grab my camera. I love today's verse - a timely reminder of God's amazing love for us, it is so undeserved. Thank you!

  10. Wow, those are wonderful shots. I love seeing the wings out and the feel of strength and motion! Beautiful to see these!

  11. Spectacular! Thanks for sharing.

  12. Beautiful eagle pictures. Like the false start on best.

  13. Oh, I just get goose bumps when I see these bald eagle pictures! I can't get enough of them!

  14. Whoa, this is fantastic... how exciting to capture such a wonderful series of photos of an amazing bird!
    I have seen some around here but never been fortunate in getting their picture!

  15. Ruth, Your pictures are so good and so action filled of the eagle that it makes me feel like I'm taking off too. Very good.

  16. Oh how beautiful. I love to see eagles. I always think of the Ron Hamilton song "Wings as Eagles" based on the verse in the Bible that talks about mounting up on wings as eagles. Such an inspirational bird.

  17. Wow, to have these eagles so close to your home, your heart must have been racing when you captured these lovely shots!

  18. Thank you for sharing your photos with us. Absolutely stunning!
    "On the wings of an eagle I will rise..." Love that song by Steve Bell.

  19. I truly hope one day I will be able to see a Bald Eagle in the Wild. What an amazing bird and beautiful captures! I still struggle with getting the picture to stay in focus as the birds I photograph begin to fly away. It happens so fast!

    I am enjoying back tracking thru your blog this morning!
