Showcasing its massive six foot wide wingspan, a Bald Eagle launches from a pole into the clear blue Colorado skies. These massive raptors are impressive when sitting still but it is when they take to the air that you gain a full appreciation for their size.
This eagle was happily perched northeast of Denver a few weeks ago when something in the distance caught its eye. It stared intently, monitoring whatever it was very closely then launched into the air, seemingly in pursuit of whatever it was. The determined look on its face and the focused stare sure made it seem like it was after something.
I never did see had its interest but then with vision four times better than a human with perfect vision, it certainly was capable of seeing far beyond my view.
