HK Encounter on Saturday, November 16, 2013

One of the benefits of following the Honey Beeagles for 2 years is I have met a lot of great people along the way. Today, I was on my way there when I received the following text message from someone I had met months ago at a condo community in the area: "Eagle perched on cell tower next to golf course."
And, sure enough, as I made the turn onto S. Independence Blvd., I could see an eagle perched way up high. I couldn't believe my good fortune! I parked under the tower and got to work.
I recognized HK right away. No way was I going to leave the car to get a closer shot. HK is very skittish of anyone pointing a camera at him. So, I just sat and waited. And waited. And waited.
I watched and waited for an hour. HK preened. HK scratched. HK pooped. HK looked around. HK looked around a lot. People drove by. People walked by. People brought trash to the dumpster. People walked their dogs. A kid kicked a football. Three people stopped and talked to me. Still, HK remained perch on the cell tower. Then, for no discernible reason, HK took off.

  1. Looks like HK and you were very busy today. :)

  2. Pam! This is fantastic! I have so often wondered what the story is behind some of your photos! I am so excited to see your posts so I can know the story behind the pictures! Love all of your posts so far, with my favorite being the "pretty bling" "who are you?"
