As they promised, it rained all day. And as I planned, I went looking for lichen in the rain. A disappointing search, though; up into the hills where the rain was lighter, the snow is still deep and the plows have built walls between the road and the woods. Coming home, I took the road that passes the dump and found a a lineup of bedraggled eagles on poles.
The light was poor; it was dark, foggy, and still raining softly, but the eagles were nicely posed against the grey sky.
|He seems to have his wings held away from his body. Trying to dry out?|
|This one looks grumpy. Can't blame him. No food; it's all under snow, and all that rain!|
|Checking me out. I had managed to get closer to this pole.|
|Not staying around for the photo session.|
|Look at those talons!|
I think I was happier about this than the eagles were.
