The Unexpected Delights of Rural Iowa

I ran a few errands earlier today.
I'm on my way home
- maybe three miles from the house -
when I crest a hill and looking
forward to the bottom
  see the unmistakable
white heads of two
- count 'em 2 -
bald eagles in the middle of the road
worrying a bit of roadkill.
They lifted away as the car came nearer
and I watched their shadows
circle past me to turn and land again.
There was no traffic from either direction
so I took my time
and enjoyed the sight.
Did I have a camera!?
Of course not, so I'll close with this image
courtesy of Google.
