This eagle has landed! It surveys the lakes and streams for tasty morsels...rather undisturbed by the footsteps of humans [and dogs] underneath its lofty perch. We watched as another flew by and eventually this one joined the soaring. They are truly magnificent birds! And their symbolism for power and heraldry are recognized worldwide. Symbolism has its place, but in this case, I prefer to view eagles in their natural habitat just being themselves and not trying to represent anything more. :) Naples Botanical Garden, Naples, FL

BTW - have you checked out Ozzie & Harriet, our local eagle celebrity pair and their pair of hatchlings via UStream? Warning - they can be addictive to watch!

  1. Majestic (as long as you are not on the receiving end of those talons). And wonderful to see them in the natural environment.
