Jordan Lake: First Bald Eagle Sighting

First Bald Eagle Sighting
A walker came to the dam this morning with her two dogs.
She asked what I and my friend were trying to photograph.
I replied that I would photograph any thing that caught my eye, including bald eagles.
She smiled and said she would like to see a bald eagle because she had never seen one.
As we talked, I glanced up, and yes, the eagle below came flying over us.
I swung my camera toward the eagle and told the lady to look.
There was a long silence as the realization of what she had seen took hold.
The dear lady agreed with me when I said we had all just been blessed.
