An Eagle in the Wild

We were driving back from Iowa a couple of days ago. Surprisingly, an eagle flew down onto the field by the road. It was farm country and I can only assume it was a wild eagle. It was the first time I have seen one in the wild. It was so uplifting. It seemed to be healthy. At least in the short time I caught a glimpse of the bird, it looked beautiful…white head, black feathers, so majestic looking. Somehow it gave me hope. When I think of the elections in this country and the level to which political “dialogue” has sunk, the brief view of a strong healthy eagle was a sign of hope. I wish I’d been able to take a picture, but it wasn’t possible. I will treasure that image in my mind’s eye.
