To my amazement, I was watching a squirrel hanging upside down on our suet feeder; acrobaticly, to see if he could catch a nibble. When all of a sudden, a huge shadow came over our woods, when I looked up, I saw that it was a bald eagle! My heart was racing, I was so shocked that it had landed high in a tree about a acre away from where I stood in my kitchen. I ran, screaming to get my camera and changed the lens on it for magnifying. I took about 18 pictures of it in the 20 minutes that it stayed in the tree. He was watching all of the squirrels running around in the woods. In one of my pics, you can see a squirrel about 6 feet in front of the eagle and in the next pic, there is a black bird that distracts the eagle from it's prey. The eagle just looked at the black bird, opened it's mouth and the black bird flew away. What a beautiful sight to behold, I am a wildlife artist and thankful for the blessing to see that we have the American Bald Eagle in our area of Indiana.
