A few weeks ago, when we were working away on our rental ….I heard the sounds of the local eagles who were out hunting for lunch.
Their cries were quite loud which meant that they were very close by.
Dropping my gardening tools, I ran into the street, joined by my neighbour. We could see the eagles swooping low, flying in tandem .. seeking their prey.
So we simply ran down the street towards the action, surprised that others in the neighbourhood simply ignored the activity.
The look says it all ….
Yep …. quarry is not visible any more ..
Undaunted, their luncheon fare gone for now .. off they flew to search for more ..
So very graceful
Bye for now ….
Such magnificent creatures these eagles are … we returned to our respective homes … still feeling a little of the wild energy emanating from this very brief closeness to the raw nature. Existing in the same area as humans, but, oh, so very much apart.
So very humbling.
