... as eagles

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

(shot in Florida in April; 70-200mm lens with 2x extender, f11, 1/500 sec, ISO200)

That verse is right up there among my favourites and so are the Eagles. This is a lovely picture. Watching an Eagle soar through the sky brings new meaning to this verse.

Great shot, Rick! I have been trying for years to capture the many that nest at our lake and light on the top of our huge pines with fish dangling from their beaks ... even from a distance, their ears seem so sensitive.

Wow! Beautiful shot. I was thinking of that scripture this morning and wishing I could get a good photo of an eagle. You beat me to it. :)

That's fantastic, Rick. I never got back to the nest of bald eagles we saw earlier in the spring. Perhaps next year I'll keep a watch and stop by weekly.

Really spectacular shot and a spectacular bird. My class of 2nd graders watched an eaglecam this year as the eggs hatched.

Oh my goodness, now how did I miss this one? I LOVE this shot of the eagle. I'm more than WOWED, I don't know what to call it besides that.

So those extenders work I see, I'm going to have to try one of them out one of these fine days.

Take care my friend and wow! :-)
