We were at the lake for the holiday weekend, but didn’t get out onto the lake until Tuesday morning. I’m really glad we got out. We were rewarded with not one bald eagle, but two. And, we got very close to a great blue heron. Here are the pics.
Just as we headed south from the OCC shore, just past the reeds, we found a young eagle high in a pine tree.
A little further down the shoreline, we came across this great blue heron sitting on a branch above the water. We drifted closer and closer, amazed that it would sit there with us so close.
Then, as we got to the south end of the lake, I saw a large bird flying closer. Turned out is was another eagle.
It landed in a pine tree along the shore and posed for photos.
As always, there is something interesting to see on the lake. Certainly not disappointed today.
