Round Robin Photo Challenge and Weekend Reflections --- Water --- Water
Welcome to this week's edition of Round Robin Photo Challenge and the Weekend Reflections meme. Round Robin is a Saturday meme that comes around every other week and this weeks theme of "WATER" was suggested by Angela of "Chocolate Soup for the Soul." Weekend Reflections takes place each weekend and is hosted by James at "Newtown Daily Photo."
I came across the perfect photo in my archives for this weeks theme at Round Robin. It just happens to also be perfect for a new meme I came across called Weekend Reflections. We don't have to go far to see the country's second largest population of bald eagles. Just about an hour north of us on the Great River Road (Hwy 100) between Alton and Grafton, Illinois. Each year, thousands of eagles migrate to that area. They come for the fish found in the cold waters of the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers. The birds begin arriving in late December and stay until March, so there's plenty of time to do a little eagle watching.
My entry today is a photo taken from the Illinois side of the Mississippi, looking across to Missouri, on a frigid New Years Eve Day in 2005 during a trip to watch the eagles.
