I hike with my daughter around Fragrance Lake, in Larrabee State Park on Saturday. There are lots of people, many with dogs. Fragrance Lake is 0.75 miles around. It is a little overcast and the lake is quite still, surrounded by trees and hills.
This is a nurse log, or really more of a nurse stump. The young tree is getting nutrition and support from the remains of the older tree.
Link your photographs on the topic nurse log. I will list them next week.
This photograph delights me. The young eagle is so ruffled and scruffy compared to the parent. Feathers all every which way, like a gangly teenager. And looks a bit sullen and grumpy, too. My teens were certainly hungry all the time and I suspect that the eagles were out because they are hungry too, so early in the spring.
Thank you, eagles!
As we walk away from the tree, here is a shot back. Both are still present but you do have to look for them. I look for the shape from a distance.
Here at last are my two star close ups of the eagles. I am standing on the path right below the tree. The eagles are putting up with me with amazing patience. They are so high up that other people are walking right by and not noticing. Take out the earbuds! Look up!
I am submitting both to the Ragtag Daily Prompt: flight.
