Bald Eagle

Passing by the Narraguagus River in Cherryfield yesterday, I spied this majestic bald eagle perched in a tree surveying the river. Big fat snowflakes fell against a gray sky as I snapped these pictures from the comfort of my car. Why is it that I never have my camera with me when I spot eagles on a sunny day with a crisp blue sky and puffy white clouds as the backdrop?

I particularly like the imagery of the American Flag flying in the background.
