I already wrote a post today for my challenge, on teaching the kids tennis. It was really boring, so I took it down. Not that this post will be much better, but, eh, what can you do?
The kids saw a bald eagle flying over our neighborhood, but I didn’t grab the camera in time to snap a really good photo. By the time I changed to a telephoto lens and headed back outside it was a good distance away. Even zooming in to 250mm this was the best I could get, no tripod:
Funny how, in some parts of the US, Bald Eagles are a common sight, but right here it is exciting enough that Sammie is still talking about it. There are nesting sites not too far from us, but we still don’t see too many.
Last time we saw an eagle it was over at a park near York.
I love this park, the hiking trails are short, but there is an awesome view.
You know what else is awesome in that photo? Lean in really close to your screen…see it yet?
Here, I chopped it down for you
He climbed out of his spot at one point to flirt with some girl hikers before returning to his music.
He was overlooking the pretty part of the river…
Not so pretty.
My kids love the park also:
There are rocks to climb, what is not to love?
One lady actually brought her hammock
Last summer, when we saw the Bald Eagle, this place look slightly different:
I love this park.
