Gee Rick...this is a great shot...Hope you know that...We have had many opportunities...but I have no luck. I don't think this was luck Rick. This was an eye of yours seeing quickly and reacting. And this is also a rather unique post. One can feel through you pics and words that this eagle is not going to be on tis very slim tee very long,....how cool....great! And a MOST Happy New Year to you! And lastly from Indian lore...catching the eagle as this was a gift from the bird to you. And in that same lore, it means many things...you had better do a net search on tis as it would take me reams of space to tell it all.

A Happy New Year to you and your family - a healthy one too. Great shot of this Eagle. You caught him in a superb position with the wings spread and the open beak.

Hi Rick and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Can you believe it's 2008. Here's to hopefully meeting up this year. Maybe we'll do another canoe trip down the South Saskatchewan River, then we can meet after. Or maybe
Wow, it sure would be an awesome sight to see so many eagles in one location. I know what you mean about sparrows, they are every where. You've captured a very big boy with huge talons. An awesome pose!
I'm feeling a bit old today.... I turned the big "FIVE O" today. We had few friends over to celebrate last night and I actually had to stay up past midnight... boy that was hard. Had a nap today though.
