In honor of my wife's 33rd birthday, a bald eagle took time off its busy schedule to visit us at Celery Bog Park right here in West Lafayette. Though difficult to see in a picture taken with our decidedly low-power lens, rest assured, McBoners, that this dark splotch is, in all its majesty, a genuine bald eagle.
-Sharpening its razor-sharp talons.
-Sharpening its razor-sharp beak.
-Surveying the landscape for the very plumpest rodents.
-Contemplating American Freedom (a.k.a. Liberty).
This bald eagle sighting represents a first for both Alex and me. A sudden and overwhelming urge to join the U.S. Armed Forces passed quickly, and we contented ourselves to gaze in wonderment. Thank you, eagle, for deigning to spend an afternoon with us.
Also, I would like to point out that my wife is very attractive.
