Hello All. In the last few years my uncle retired and closed the doors to his custom sign and lettering business that he owned for many years. Since then, he has taken to nature photography; traveling around the US and taking pictures of only wild animals that are in no way captive. In 2010 he traveled to Alton, Illinois where every winter hundreds of Eagles gather on the river. He was able to capture the picture below, after watching this eagle on the branch in front of the flag for over an hour, he finally got a few shots where the flag was blowing in the wind and the eagle was looking to the side for a good profile shot. I just thought I would share this picture and the story behind it because to me that is what our country is all about; being free to work and live how you want, and still become successful.
