“Look – out on the ice. Is those hawks or eagles?”
Another matching bird flies low overhead and lands near the others.
“Eagles, they’re eagles.”
“Let me borrow your phone to take a pic.”
“We’re too far away, you won’t get much.”
“But I’ll get something.”
“Let’s walk a little farther down the bridge. We’ll be a bit closer so you can get a better shot.”
“Now you can see them better. Slightly.”
One bird flies away, another takes to the air swooping over the open water closer to the bridge.
“Take a video.”
“By the time I get the phone out again, the eagle will be gone.”
After almost a minute of watching the bird, reach for phone.
Bird immediately flies back to the resting spot on the ice.
Some things are meant to be enjoyed in the moment.
