Ice portraits

Today was a wonderful day for watching young bald eagles. They seemed to be everywhere this morning. Since it was a pretty nippy one, I didn’t have to worry about anyone coming along and spooking them. I just found a rock to sit on and spent some time just hanging out with them. I love how the young ones have this earnest awkwardness. They look very muppet-like. At the same time, I know that only about half will make it to adulthood, so there’s always a bit of sadness watching them. Click on pictures to enlarge.
