Day 501 — Bald Eagle — Haibun Journey Beauty Each Day

Today’s beauty was totally unexpected. We were out hiking in the woods. Mostly we were trying to photograph dragonflies and our daughter was trying to catch tiny tree frogs. Suddenly I heard a sharp cry. I looked up to see a bald eagle sitting in a high over head in a sand pine tree. I could clearly see the white feathers on his head. Although I had my camera out, I could not get it focused in time to capture the shot, hence the empty branch.
