Luck Is Better Than Skill by catch---22 Luck Is Better Than Skill by catch---22
...every time.

Although bald eagles are on the upswing in my area it's still rare to see them. The last one I had seen in the wild had to be 30 years ago.

I had a chance to get out in the hills of my youth while visiting my parents last weekend. Right after sunrise I had one explode out of some trees as I was walking down a path from a lake. it was huge and totally cool. I never had a chance with the camera. I believe I actually "wooted" upon seeing it. that alone made the outing worth it. then later that morning I came across this beauty posing and soaking in the morning sun.

it was a very good morning deep in the woods of the winding stair mountains of oklahoma.
