Sunset with the Eagles

After making it through an emotionally draining morning and afternoon yesterday, I decided to go hiking at a local nature preserve to clear my mind.  I got out there just before sunset and made my way to a spot where I could see the bald eagles’ nest that is just beyond the boundary of  the preserve.  I’ve spent a great deal of time out there since I learned of the nest a month or so ago.  Last night was special, though, because I had a chance to not only see one of the eagles swoop down from the nest to catch a fish from one of the ponds for dinner, but also the chance to catch it on camera.   It was a great way to end an otherwise bad day.
