I'm Just in Awe of the Damn Picture, Okay?

Crash landing: The young bald eagle's head pokes through the windscreen after a truck hit the bird at 60mph in Bear Lake, Idaho. It suffered internal bleeding but no broken bones

This poor Eagle collided with a semi-truck at 60 MPH. It survived and has been rehabilitated and released back into the wild.

Fierce and amazing! I am in awe of the damn picture, too!

Bet it felt like it had been hit by a Mac truck.

I'm amazed it survived. I'll bet it has arthritis and hurts on wet days.

Holy fucking shit!!

That's my first reaction. This is a simply amazing picture and I'm happy this beautiful eagle survived but I bet the driver ruined his undies. :)

We live about 12 miles from the MN river and when we first moved here seeing an eagle was a rare event. These days I see them weekly and getting further away from the river. They are something incredible to see in the flesh.

Mr. M.,
Great idea!

Thanks. I hate to be left out of shit. I love you (and Bo!).

Melly Mel,
What a treat to see those magnificent birds. I've never seen one close up.

Love to you and A.!

I don't know the hows and whys. Sorry dear.

Thanks for all of your comments and for reading my crap.
