Beauty in nature

I heard the screech and looked up in time to catch a sequence of shots of this bald eagle hunting at Namu, BC. Eagles are plentiful and always a joy to watch.

Hard to tell from this shot if he was successful, but he kept his legs down while flying back to his nest. I'm guessing he caught something.
At Fury Cove with Fitzhugh Sound right beyond the trees and narrow sandy beach, the clouds lit up in pinks and magentas as the twilight lingered on and on.
Humpbacks! Life is sweet.

Wow... what photos! The first one of the eagle is an amazing action shot. Both ones of the eagle show such feather displays.

Then there's that pink skiff of cloud in the twilight. That's why pastels exist!

And the whale. Listen for the deep-down whale song deep down in your soul. It's there.

I'm so glad you're there with all of it.

Even growing up on the ocean beaches, I have never seen a whale. Good job.

One thing I have seen is hawks taking rattlesnakes off the road. Twice.

When I was in Dutch Harbor, the balds were like seagulls - so many. Hundreds and hundreds of them.

Wow. So cool.
Have always wanted to see a whale in the wild. Only saw the very tiniest glimpse of two, in Hawaii, very far away. Just made out the tail, which was breathtaking even from such a distance.
