Not Everyone Was Active…
Here are a few more views of the bald eagle that was patrolling over the salt marsh yesterday afternoon. He made several wide circles over the water, possibly attracted by the activities of the pelicans, egrets, and herons that were feeding down there.
Although the birds, including this eagle, kept themselves quite busy all day, that was not the case for everyone. Our favorite marsh resident Mister A was instead enjoying a pleasant nap in the sun. The big guy is not fond of unnecessary or optional movement, choosing to conserve energy wherever and whenever possible.
He really does look like the master surveying his domain! Fierce gaze which misses nothing even the dozing lizard!!
I bet he has incredible eyesight! Doesn’t need it to spot our napping alligator though. 🙂
Wow!!! Grand shots!
I’m happy you enjoyed them Amy!
Beautiful pictures of the king of the air and king of the marsh!
Those two are a combo I would be happy to look at every day! 🙂
The contrast between those two is great. Sort of like people.
I suppose if I was part of a behavioral nature study, I would more likely be considered closer to the alligator in how I spend my day. Much more laying around then fast flying or walking.
Amazing pics, Phil. So nice to see Mr A again. 🙂
Thank you Sylvia, and yes I always look forward to his return. It may take a while for him to actually *do* anything though. 🙂
Beautiful eagles pics, Phil. The gator looks very peaceful.
I’m glad you enjoyed the eagle flights. That gator knows how to relax, that’s for sure.
Wow, powerful photos. The alligator looks like it is smiling while sunbathing.
Thanks for looking! That alligator was just happy to see the sun and warm up his hide. We had a few cold windy days with more to come.
Thank you very much for looking and commenting!
Mr. A sure does know how to relax. I’m sure he will get what he needs . . . .whenever he feels like it ;-D
He does it the right way, take it nice and easy until you finally really have to spring into action. 😮
He dfeinitely doesn’t want to waste energy – which is probably why he has Superman eyesight, right? LOVE that picture of Mr. A napping on his little island!
When I left him he was exactly in that same position. I got home and found my cat had not moved either. 🐱 They would get on great together I think. Well… for a while anyway. 😀
Great pictures once again Mr. Lanoue!
Well I appreciate that very much, thank you!
