My Very First One!

I can not believe I finally got a BALD EAGLE!  When we first started our walk this morning I noticed, quite suddenly, something very near the front pond---just to my left.  Just as suddenly, it took flight all the while I'm saying, "Wait! Wait!" as I am frantically getting my camera out of the bag.  Of course, I miss him standing by the pond AND in flight.  Of course.  Why would I have thought to be camera ready when one of the top three reasons for these daily walks is to take pictures of birds????  However, I was able to get him in the pine tree!  And, for now, that will just have to do.
