Today was one of those days when I have a hard time staying warm. Even though the high temperature broke out of the 30s, the cold wind and dampness kept me shivering most of the day. Peppermint and I took a brief walk this afternoon, taking in the winter scenery and trying to get a little exercise on an otherwise quiet afternoon in the office.
A highlight, though, was watching an adolescent bald eagle hunting for game near the mountain. At first I thought it was a hawk because of its coloring, but when I got closer I realized it was a young eagle. It hovered about 30 feet in the air and then circled around, obviously searching for prey it had spotted in the undergrowth. Of course, I didn’t have my DSLR with me, but that’s OK. I’m still enamored with my iPhone and enjoyed photographing the landscape. And when my hands got cold shooting, I just turned off the phone and everything went into my pockets!
