Amazing Pictures

Last week my brother and I watched a female bald eagle teaching an immature eagle how to kill. The adult repeatedly knocked down a seagull that the immature bird pecked at trying to kill. After about 4 times the adult lost patience and obliterated the seagull.

But that is nothing compared to these pictures. My neighbour says she took them, I don't know but they are amazing.

The set of pictures are loaded with symbolisms.
Swan - light, grace, beauty, etc, etc, etc.
Bald Eagle - USA, among others

Nothing against Bald Eagles, but the pictures seem to signify US Foreign Policy, in particular, of this decade.

Those are fabulous pictures.

I took this one of an osprey just a few weeks ago near my place in Florida, in fact it was on the road that goes into the Kennedy Space Center. If you look closer you can see the fish he plucked out of the water right in front of me.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
