7/29/10 Bald Eagle

7/29/10 – Sawbill crew member and future National Geographic photographer (at least he should be) Luke Opel got this majestic shot of a Bald Eagle on nearby Alton Lake recently. Mr. Baldy here has been riding the thermals for a while, undoubtedly preying on some fresh Alton fish. Bald Eagles have eyesight eight times stronger than our own, fine enough to read newspaper print from across a football field – or to spot a pike from 500 feet.
I had to resist using the word “majestic” a lot more writing about this one.
