I'm sitting here working on the Daily Affirmations and Quotes when I gazed up at the frost covered field behind my house to admire the rising sun and all but dropped my coffee. An eagle swooped down across the field. I watched for a few moments to make sure it was indeed what I saw. A few minutes later it rose up out of the high grass in the back of the field and circled around the field a couple times before it flew off. I have seen an eagle only one other time in my life, and never near my home. It was amazing to see, it's black body and white head just glistened in the early morning sun as it spread it's wings wide to swoop down over the field. This was a very good size eagle. I only wish I had a better camera to capture these types of things. My iphone is good but not that good lol. It won't take the distance shots that well.
