Is It Really a BALD EAGLE?

Yesterday, Sam had the priviledge of seeing something rare in our part of the country.  We have seen one before but never this close up.  What was it?  A BALD EAGLE!  I know that people do see them here, but it certainly is not an ever day event.
He was down at the farm checking on irrigation and something unusual caught his attention...

Sitting at the top of a pole less than a 100 yards away was this Gorgeous Bald EagleWouldn't you know it, He did not have his Camera with him...When Sam called, he was so excited and wanted me to get his camera ready.  He was driving in to get it a hopefully the eagle would still be there when he got back.

I had the batteries charged and the camera waiting when he pulled up and then he was off to capture a rare shot.  As he left on his adventure he was almost positive that the bird would be gone.   When he approached the lake he could see that the eagle 
was still perched upon the pole.  His plan was to quietly open his truck door and get in position to take the shot....{photo shot}
           {Whew, I better make this clear....NO GUN}

He managed to open the door and just as he was stepping down, his foot his a water puddle.  Isn't it amazing how quick these birds are and how precise their hearing must be.  The bird turned it's head and took off.  Sam was so impressed with the W  I  N  G
S  P  R  E  A  D 
of the eagle.  He had his camera in position and clicked to take that PERFECT picture of the bird in motion...

Let me show you exactly what he got.......Do you see it?  Do you see the Bald Eagle?    I didn't either, but Sam says it is there!  He took the camera back with him today in hopes that the ALL TIME FAMOUS BALD EAGLE will be there.......We will just have to wait and SEE!
