Digital Photograph - The Loner

This is a most beautiful tree from the Wildlife Refuge. As I drove through the refuge I saw this tree with a large bird sitting in it. I stopped...took a picture...drove closer...stopped...took a picture this went on for some time till I arrived at the tree. I got out and started to take pictures of the tree and the bird. As I zoomed in on the bird I realized the rather large bird was not a Vulture but a large male Bald Eagle who was keeping an eye on me. He graciously allowed me to take several pictures before he flew off - screeching - to wow me with catching a fish.

I have submitted one of the photos to a photo contest or else I would share. Keep your fingers crossed that I get atleast a honorable mention. The background for this photograph I gleaned from DJ Pettitte. Thank you DJ.
