We took some time to ourselves Sunday afternoon and explored a familiar place, Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area, near Columbia, Missouri.
How often do you get to see an eagle, on her nest, with young ones? And then how often do you get to see two occupied nests in one day? Here are a few images that I just have to share.
The adult eagle is in the upper left corner, and the nest in the lower right. Notice the heads of the two young ones!
This is as close as my lens would allow, but it is still so amazing to see these beautiful birds.
This is the second nest we were able to see, with the adult keeping a watchful eye.
This area is simply beautiful. We saw so much more than my pictures can tell.
And through the trees we could see turtles sunning on logs, but they escaped quickly into the water if we moved closer.
This is a place I am certain we will return to many times.
