Among the Eagles

All photos taken on May 20, 2022.

After days where we barely saw any eagles, today was another motherlode as we walked down by Port San Juan. It was like they were showing what we would be missing when we left.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Thanks Lyssy. I used my bird brain to think these up. The Osprey was a gift and for the first while I did not know what I was even looking at. Thanks for reading. Allan


    1. Thanks John. I agree, that is why I pushed to get a closer shot. Falcons and hawks are fierce, but the bald eagle is in a league of their own. Thanks for reading. Allan


    1. Thanks Leighton. I was so happy to see this guy sitting out front during my morning coffee. Perhaps I should have asked him to join. The name’s Raptor….Clawed Raptor, I am a man of many Talons. I would never want to be the object of an eagle’s hunting. Thanks for reading. Allan

  1. I’ve seen quite a few Bald Eagles. Missouri (my home state) has quite a few areas where they thrive. They are a very majestic bird for sure. I even got the opportunity to see one catch a duck (mallard) many “moons” ago. It really was Nature at its finest.
    Great captions, by the way 🙂

    1. We love watching the birds, wherever we are. We were so lucky to be among the eagles at this spot. There are a few eagles in our area, but they are not often spotted. Thanks so much for reading and commenting Scott. Have a great Sunday. Allan
