... the eternal triangle. One of them, anyway.
Here's the triangle. At the upper left is a bald eagle, and at the upper right a crow. The bottom point, I'm sorry to tell those of you who find these things gruesome, is a dead deer. Maybe this triangle is pretty normal after all. Both the eagle and the crow are in love with that deer. For lunch.
Actually, the eagle had been there since breakfast. As I drove by, on the way to a hike last Saturday, I saw it sitting on the deer carcass, tearing out strips of meat. That highway is quite busy, but the eagle didn't seem to notice that cars and large trucks were zooming by, just five feet away from it's meal.
Much to my surprise, it was still there munching, when I headed home four hours later. So I turned around and came back. The eagle wasn't crazy about that. It left the deer and parked in the birch tree, where it watched me carefully. I parked and watched the eagle. That's when the crow thought it might have a chance at a snack.
But the eagle gave the crow the... (forgive me)... eagle eye, and the crow didn't even take a diving swipe at the deer.
I was trying to get decent pictures through the windshield, on a misty, rainy day. Then, someone pulled up behind me, thinking that I was having car trouble. Well, that was more than the eagle was willing to put up with.
It flew away... so I did too.
