Among the Eagles

All photos taken on May 20, 2022.

After days where we barely saw any eagles, today was another motherlode as we walked down by Port San Juan. It was like they were showing what we would be missing when we left.

Looking on in awe

we cannot believe our eyes.

Among the eagles.

Bald Eagle

Are you looking at my butt?

Don’t make me come down there

Stop ruffling my feathers

I am a bird of many talons

Show a little respect

I’ll even pose for you

I’m giving you the side eye

Those things are really, really sharp

every feather in place

Batman cape pose

What’s for lunch?

I’m turning my back on you.

One last look

Osprey

Ready to dive

no need to get in a flap

Look at me. I’m so pretty.

Does this branch make my butt look big?

How about now?

beautiful flier

look, I’ve got a tail wind

and I’m off….out of sight, but not out of mind

OK, so Patty was right. I got some eagle shots.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Thanks. The close ups are a bit muzzy as they are digital zoom, which just makes stuff up. Still you get an idea of the strength and power of this raptor. I think one look from this beautiful bird would send most folks running. Thanks for reading. Allan

    2. I really enjoyed the “different” poses! Normally eagle photos are those that are expected to inspire majesty and grandeur. I like that you captured the funny, the kooky, and the irreverent. I’m still smiling as I type this—thank you for that!

      1. Glad I could share a laugh. The world needs more laughter to stop us from crying. I may not be an avid birdwatcher, but I do enjoy their antics and how they seem to embody all the human traits. Birds are honest. Thanks for reading. Allan🦅🦅😊

  1. Great shots Allan – As for the quality of the photos, everyone should be happy to be able to take them in the first place, especially from a wild animal.
    A nice series of photos !

    1. Thanks Linda. I guess you have to be a bird brain to put words in the beaks of birds. I often think that birds always show who they are to the outside world, unlike supposedly more intelligent creatures. Thanks for reading. Allan
