On The Ride Home. April 22, 2010

Took the slightly longer way home today, down along the Deerfield river, looking for flowering trees at the river’s edge.  Instead I found a young bald eagle rending a rainbow trout up in a big oak tree:

I was screened from it by enough branches to be able to watch it for a while without spooking it.  Unfortunately they also obscured the eagle, but hey, I tried!

Thanks to Gizmo for this one, propped up as he was in my driver’s side seat.

What a find!

Our cat caught a lizard this morning.

Awesome. I am so envious.

Very cool photo. Even cooler that you were able to spy on him for a bit.

I find birds this size to be very other-worldly. They give me the chills (in a good way, of course!).

Fantastic photo. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I love your part of the world–although we live in the desert southwest now, we spent many years in the town next to Deerfield, NH. I know it’s yet another Deerfield, but also beautiful.

It appears to be a see-through fish. Really nice effect and excellent capture of an eagle. What a rare treat.
