The High and the Mighty

My Wife and I were returning from church Sunday when I spotted this Bald Eagle sitting in the sunlight about 75 feet off the ground next to the road. I did not have my camera with me but we were only a mile from home so I went home and got it. I was hoping the eagle would still be there when I returned. As I approached the spot he was still sitting high and mighty in the beautiful blue sky and sunlight. I knew I did not dare to open the door because he would take off so I opened the window and clicked several shots of him and then decided to see if he would fly and as soon as the door opened he flew off. The moral of the story is when you go to church good things happen. Picture taken with a Canon 50D with a 100-400 L I/S zoom lens.
