Tree-top Lunch


Saturday was a beautiful, perfect-cycling-weather kind of day.  I was mindlessly pedaling along, smiling peacefully, taking in all the natural serenity surrounding me on one of the first gorgeous days of fall.


Not far up ahead a group was pulled off to the side, looking up into a tree-top.  Oh, wow, was I ever glad I made a vow to never cycle without my camera again!  I pulled over to join them, and as quietly and quickly as I could, pulled the camera out with record speed.  I was so concerned he was going to fly before I could focus, and equally concerned I would send him flying with my movements.


My concerns were unfounded as he was happily enjoying a feast fit for an eagle…no movement of mine or any other new-comers were apt to disturb him from finishing his lunch.


I did get pictures of him eating, but I’ve spared you those, just sharing his post-lunch poses.

We were able to enjoy him for at least five minutes. After he cleaned his beak and looked down at us a few times as if to ask, “Haven’t you guys ever seen an eagle eating before?” he took to the skies, leaving us all with a profound sense of awe and gratitude for the incredible display of nature we had just shared.


Until next time, look up occasionally, you never know what spectacle may be perched above your head!

  1. What beautiful captures Jen, you certainly were blessed. My wife often prays when we go out for a walk or birding for the Lord to give us a ‘gift’ asking “and what have you got for us today?’ and something usually turns up. You did well. and yes I learnt never to forget my camera as I did once and lost a great opportunity. Like you, will avoid the same mistake. Great captures of a noble and majestic type of our God, who carries us on eagles wings. Enjoy your week, and other beautiful finds.

  2. Your photos are just wonderful, Jen! ““Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: ‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!’ ” (Rev. 5: 13). ❤
