Visiting Royalty

We had the privilege of a King Of The Air, aka Bald Eagle, grace our farm's pond. It selected a nice 14-inch bass from Bentley Pond for its breakfast and proceeded to consume it with much vigor, after diving into the pond to catch its aquatic prey.

Maude Grant once wrote,"The bald eagle was the emblem of the United States of American, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks..." I might add to that descriptive list, powerful talons, a kingly grace, and a beak so sharp, it hurts to look at it.
