Jordan Lake. Hot? Yes, indeed hot! About 20 minutes after sunrise the sun had already burned most of the blue right out of the sky. Then, this two year old bald eagle showed up, panting. She perched and looked at me and then out towards mid-lake. The youngster stayed about 4 minutes and then flew around the bend and deeper into a heavily shadowed cove. I decided maybe she was smarter than me about the heat and so I soon gathered up my equipment and headed home.
