More About That Hike

Hello again, everyone.  It's me, Cammie.  As promised, I have more for you about that hike we took the other day!  Now ... where were we?

Oh, yes. Right about ... here:

"Here" being on Eagle Pass Trail out at Tuttle Creek State Park. We were merrily hiking along when Dad spotted a Bald Eagle! He held our leashes while Mom crept a little closer (but not so close as to disturb the majestic bird -- remember, she shoots with a 600mm lens!). She saw the eagle perched high above:

He had just finished a snack and seemed quite pleased!

"Best shad I've had all day!"

Then he took off in search of more fishies:

We posed for a photo at the end of the trail:

We looped back around via the road and that's when ...

"Squirrel!"
"DINNER!"

See?  There is something for everyone at Tuttle Creek!

I took a moment of quiet reflection at the River Pond ...

... then we headed home.

"Mags?  You had fun, didn't you?"

"I did, too!"

I hope all of you had fun, as well!  Thanks for coming on our walk with us!

Cammie!

  1. I'm always amazed at the bald eagle pictures you get! Momma says she's never ever seen a live one out of the zoo.

  11. Maggie looks like she is in heaven:) Total bliss!

    Mom heard on the news today that two more bald eagles were shot and killed in two KS counties - so sad and cruel.

    Happy St. Paddy's Day!

  12. What a gorgeous bird! He is just magnificent and your mom did a great job capturing him. He seems to be wearing some jewelry on his ankles. It looks like you guys all had a great time on your hike. I hope you had a great St. Paddy's Day today

  15. Your mom takes the best photos ever-I think she should be published!!!!! We haven't seen many eagles here lately-probably getting ready to head elsewhere for the spring. I haven't been to our town lake yet to see if there are any nests. Great job!!!
