Holy Cow!!!!!

Ya'll will never believe what I saw! I couldn't believe what I saw, I also couldn't believe I had my camera handy! I was driving down a road that goes through a nature preserve and along side the Minnesota river behind our apartment complex. It's a road I usually enjoy driving in all weather beause it's so senic and peaceful. This time, however, I was in a bit of a hurry because I was coming back from observing a student at his daycare way up in another suburb about 45 minutes north of Farmington. I was a bit frustrated by the driver in front of me who had slowed down to a crawl. I saw her sticking her head out of her window and couldn't figure out what she was looking at. Well then I passed the spot and saw 2 bald eagles! I've never even seen one outside of a zoo and here were two sitting in the trees as calm as you please. I pulled over and got out and they just sat there, so I grabbed the camera and snapped a couple of shots. I was totally overcome. It reall was amazing to see them sitting in the trees. I know, I know they are birds that are making a comeback and it is more and more common to see them but still......... Anyway, thought I'd finally share these since its been probably a month or so since I took the pictures.

  1. I love the river valley!! I see Bald Eagles there all the time and feel overwhelmed EVERY SINGLE TIME! It does bring tears to my eyes for some reason. God's way of letting us know how AMAZING the simple things in life are! :0)
