Regal

From a whirlwind trip to Canmore and back this morning/afternoon. This guy was feeding on a deer at the side of the road, and contrary to my usual experience with eagles, this one didn’t take flight as soon as I approached.

That was pretty much it for sightings of any significance, though there were large numbers of deer feeding in the fields after this last weekend’s heavy snows…

Now, hopefully the CME headed towards earth today is moving slow enough that it will be dark when it gets here and the aurora will show itself tonight. And, hope for the clouds to blow off to the east!!

  1. Awesome as usual Kerry…. I am sooooo jealous – I have been looking for Eagles ALL the times I have been out – but no luck 😦

    Great pic you 🙂

  2. Thank you Leah – Kind of a spur of the moment trip… Andrea and I were both home and the 2 oldest were in school, so we packed Drew in the car and away we went…
