OMG. You won’t believe this story.

I took Lili(my faithful photo dog buddy) for her usual evening walk up in the back of my house by the golf course. Fortunately, that is where the eagles hang out.
They have been pretty boring, albeit, beautiful.


Tonight they had a very large bass that they were sharing.

I took a bunch of pictures and we went for our walk.
They don’t pay much attention to Lili and I any more which is cool. On our way back to the car, we had to pass under the tree they were now in.
I took a few more pictures, and as we passed under the tree, they dropped the fish and it landed about 3ft from our feet.
Lili is off leash.

I told her to stay and lie down, she did and we both stood still.
The big female flew down and walked over to get it. Looked at us, and took it back up into the tree and continued eating. It was soooooo exciting!!!

Wow, how fun! Good thing she is not a little dog, they may have taken her too! That would be bad!!!!

Thank you everyone.

Yes, Lili is well trained.
A friend of ours found her by a dumpster, four years ago. She was about 5 weeks old.
I have been taking her everywhere with me since. She is not allowed to chase birds, gloves are off if she sees a squirrel. Haha.

Excellent images and what a fantastic experience! We have several eagles and a few coyotes close to us so we keep an eye on our 13 pound Jack Russell while she is outside and always on a leash after dark.

Thank you.
As soon as it gets dusky, I keep Lili on a leash too for the same reasons.
She is pretty big, 80# but I don’t trust the eagles.
Who knows what they would/can do?
