Traditionally, the theme day for January in the CDP community has been 'Photo of the Year'. I don't think there's an official theme day today, but I thought I would continue the tradition nevertheless. This shot was taken on St. Patrick's Day 2012 early in the evening. A bald eagle surprised me by flying around a bank of trees in the Sarasota city limits with what appears to be a rack of roadkill ribs. It was so low (just above an electrical line) that I think we startled each other. Definitely, an awesome memorable moment! I ended up calling the eagle family the Eddies (Edward and Edwina) and I have great news about them -- they're back! The other day I mentioned I saw two workmen climbing down the Eddies' cell tower and I was concerned they may have been scared away. Well, I saw both Eddie & Eddie yesterday morning. One was in the nest and the other was flying out of the nest. Excellent. I hope 2013 is filled with terrific photo opps for my friends in the blogosphere. Happy New Year!
