Similar to a previous upload but I thought it was worth uploading. I only have had a short amount of time lately, so appologies for just clicking. It has been over a month since I last got out with the camera, firstly through illness and now, the last few days, catching up on work. Maybe tomorrow if the weather holds out.
An American Bald Eagle today, one of my favourites. I hope you like him.
Thanks to Andy and Kevin for their UA's on my last upload and to Geoff for his compliment. And thanks to everyone for the C&C's.
Have a great weekend.
Steve.
