Closer to an Eagle Than I Thought I'd Ever Be

Last weekend we were on Shawano Lake in east-central Wisconsin, "reuning" with my best friends from my law school days (in a former life I was an attorney for a few years). One of our hosts took us out in their pontoon boat and, knowing of our interest in birdwatching, made a detour along a rare stretch of undeveloped land on that very built-up lake, where they had sometimes seen eagles. This one was resting and scanning the lake, and seemed undisturbed when we cut the motor and drifted silently closer for a better look.

Gorgeous photo Penny! I still get goosebumps to be so close to such an amazing, powerful creature.
