As August came to a close, I was able to escape New York summer heat and drive with husband, sons and friends to our beloved Maine family island. 

I treasure every moment spent on this stunningly beautiful island, with its sandy beach, magnificent woods, amazing rock formations and the most spectacular moss species (moss post to follow!). I love taking long early morning and late afternoon walks, camera in hand of course. To my bewilderment, I spotted a bald eagle, rather rare and highly protected (a mere possession of a bald eagle feather can cost a $25000 fine!)

Camera set, I very discreetly started to follow his path and his flight...

A Bientot,



  1. Wonderful to have seen him....thank you for the images Francine....xv

  2. F, Happy end of summer. Simple moments like that are inspiring, good to share them.

  3. Francine,
    Thank you so much for sharing these gorgeous photographs! So beautiful and dignified!

  4. That is some handsome Bird. He must have a nest
    and wife there. .
    My favorite time of year Autumn, it is almost here.

  5. Beautiful - and great shots!! So majestic in flight!

  6. Dear Francine,
    So sorry to hear that you were in the middle of Hurricane Irene. Although we have some pretty odd weather here in the UK and, if it snowed in July, no-one would bat an eyelid, we are never sent such extremes of weather and I can't imagine what it must be like. I hope that you are getting back on an even keel now.
    Anyway, how lovely for you to escape to such a beautiful area and, how lucky were you to catch a glimpse of such a beautiful bird. Your photographs are wonderful.
    Have a lovely time with your family Francine and take care. Much love. XXXX

  7. Hi Francine
    What very special photos you were able to capture. It is one thing to be in the presence of such a beautiful creature, but quite another to be able to capture it. Brilliantly done!!
