Bald Is Beautiful
My impression of our national bird had been less than favorable. The only bald eagles I’d witnessed up close looked bedraggled and mangy. But over the weekend I spotted three bald eagles at the banks of the Kaw River in Lawrence. The majestic creatures soared gracefully, apparently seeking prey. Every time they neared a flock of gulls, panic would erupt among the much smaller birds. This shot is the best I could do with my basic Kodak.
