One reason we love the area we live in is all the wildlife we see. This is the time of year when large amounts of salmon swim up our river towards their spawning grounds. The fish attract many animals of prey one of which are bears. We happened to see one last week fishing in the river.
The salmon also attract bald eagles and we saw several of them yesterday sitting in the trees. These birds are so huge and we were awestruck to see them up so close. We've seen many ospreys with their huge nests during the summer but they don't compare in size and stature to the eagles.
This reminds me of the eagle pendant I was asked to make. I really enjoy doing unusual custom orders like this.
