I spotted this gorgeous eagle keeping watch atop a monstrous power pole this past Sunday. For an hour it sat there surveying the earthy domain beneath it while I watched it from below. I thought for sure it would take flight, unable to resist the temptation of the dozens if not hundreds of prairie dogs that in the field below that could provide an easy meal.
Instead it was quite content to just hang out and watch with the only real action to be observed was a rather lengthy stretch of its wings which this image captures. It is kind of a neat image in that it almost appears the raptor was landing but that was not the case.
