“The eagle has landed”

The Anishinabe people call the eagle "Migesi"

Safe flights, dear Migesi

The eagle lands and rests on the top of the trees.  He’s ready to take off into the sky again soon.  He surveys the lake.  He watches the almost-invisible underwater fish.  He swivels his head to glance at the photographer.

The photographer is about to take off into the sky, too. 

We’ll both fly upward this afternoon, catching the drafts of the wind.  We’ll spread our wings wide.   

We’ll soar… Oh, how we’ll soar…

    Oh, how lucky are you! Both to have gotten this shot of an eagle, and to be headed to the land of sun and fun! Have a great trip!

    Thank you all for the lovely travel wishes and compliments on the eagle. How glorious those migesis are! It was fun to be able to photograph this one close up, thanks to the new camera.

    I am at the airport now. We board in a half hour. Heck, I think we board in 15 minutes. I should start packing up my bag and get ready!

    It was so funny. Barry left me a note this morning urging me to remember the camera, the camera cord, the Sony Cybershot, the battery chargers, the computer, the telephone, etc. Then he said, “You’re carrying so many electronics you’re like a Radio Shack dealer!” If I had more wits about me I would have written a blog with that title. lol!

    Oh my….what a wonderous beauty! I never tire of seeing eagles – they take my breath away.
    Travel blessings – can’t wait to hear/see your adventures this time 🙂

    I hope your flight was a good one and that you’re now enjoying warm and sunny weather as you walk on the beach. 🙂

  15. There is something about raptors like eagles and hawks which bring out a human’s need for freedom. To fly powerfully…to be at the top of the world. Your eagle is majestic. I trust your flight was as well.

    Thank you again! 🙂
