Our Day Out A Photo Blog

Saturday we went for a drive and I always take my camera. Here are a just a few of the things we saw on our impromptu adventure. We were on the look out for America's majestic bird, the Bald Eagle.

We found him and a few friends too. I wish I had a telephoto lens on my little camera. But, as you can see from the wordless Wednesday post I was still able to catch some wonderful photos.

The bay was frozen and it was cold but we watched and waited for the sun to come up and he soon arrived with a golden eagle by his side.
 It took a while for him to fly close enough for me to get a snap of him

After we were  frozen through and through we headed home. 
We decided to stop by the park near our home and there was a lot of activity.
I was laughing when I saw the ducks cuddled up in all of the cattail fluff.


Some of the running water and part of the pond wasn't frozen. 
So Sparky couldn't resist throwing his line in the water.
So I wandered around a bit.  
I found this little guy poking his head up out of the water.

 Sadly just up the stream I found this.......


                                                 
 This chubby little guy was being shy!

As we drove home all we could say is what a blessing it is to see so much of God's handy work in one day.

You are definately an artist with a lens. Absolutely beautiful shots and I know you both had to have been so cold. Thanks for braving the cold and taking us along for the view. Have a great thursday.
