Photo Finish Friday - Earth and Sky Edition

A magnificent Bald Eagle soars above a field looking for food

while a Sandhill Crane stays close to the ground on a warm spring day.

Two big birds! Excellent!

I saw a sandhill crane the other day, flying overhead, but didn't get a picture. And I'm still trying to capture a trumpeter swan on film. And that darned woodpecker..... Sigh.

Have a great weekend, cousin!

df Leah,

So I clicked and enlarged. How majestic is the eagle! How confident is the crane.

Just wonderful.

Thank you.


Dawn said...

I'm enjoying your bird images.

We have a lot of trees and consequently a lot of birds about. My winter garden is full of thrushes and blackbirds eating crab apples.

Reb said...

How beautiful they are.

Leah J. Utas said...

fdBag Lady, we were so pleased to see those birds. It was a good birding day all around.

dfTerrie, you are so welcome.

Dawn, that must be quite a sight and a sound.

Yes, Reb, they sure are.

I have more in common with the Sandhill Crane but would love to hang with the Bald Eagle.

Leah J. Utas said...

That would be great, David. To be up with the eagle.

Thomma Lyn said...

Earth bird and sky bird -- I love them both. Beautiful pictures.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you, Thomma Lyn. It was such a treat to see them.
