Some of you noticed that I changed my header. I have shown it before, but never in the snow which shows it off better. It's called Winter Spirit by Jan Patek and is all cotton and needle turn applique. I received it as a pattern when Jan use to have her newsletter. Winter Spirit was the fabric line by Brannock and Patek for the quilt.
A few more details on the Bald Eagle. I'm not educated enough to tell if it's a female or male, although the female is actually slightly bigger than a male.
I cropped the picture so you could see the eagle's beak and the white feathers underneath, tinged with blood from feeding on a dead deer. Check out those talons. The eagle was patiently waiting it's turn to feed.
Thanks so much for all the comments. It's like an element of serendipity to have the chance to capture the beauty of a wild creature. I never fail to appreciate that opportunity or the joy of the moment. It's my pleasure to be able to share these moments with you.
