Hi Everyone. Happy Monday.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Thanks to all of you who played along with the "guess what was at the end of my lens". Lou and I both loved reading your comments and suggestions on what it might be. From blue birds to dinosaurs and everything in between. I really had fun with it and am so glad that you did, too
So... want a closer look.... let's get a half-way view:
Now.. I think you can all guess what it is.... want to be sure?
and here's another shot:
When you see how majestic these amazing birds are, you can totally see why the US chose the Bald Eagle as their national symbol. Lou and I were so thrilled. Lou saw him flying in across the wetland and called for me to get my camera. It certainly says a lot about my new camera that it can zoom in as far as it does. In case you are wondering how far - let me remind you of the photo that started this fun:-)
Now that you know where he is... if you look at about 11 oclock and focus your eye toward the far trees, you can just see a brown outline. Then look at the earlier photos in this post - pretty amazing for a non-professional camera, I think.
And yes, Shirley.... this is in color - it's about as much color as we get here in Minnesota at this time of year.... meaning.. not a heck of a lot! It's brown.... and brown... and another shade of brown :-) However, on the close-up of the Baldie, you can see a little bit of green peeping up around one of the water holes.
Now... who won the Paper Pumpkin package? Let's see. Lou chose a number between 1 and 26 and he choose..... Drum Roll, please!
