An Eagle Watches Over Crater Lake Resort

Carved Wood Eagle Crater Lake Resort, Oregon ~ May 8, 2005

Someone with carving tools and an artistic bent thought it would be nice to perch one of the local bird species permanently on a living tree in the forested grounds of Crater Lake Resort near the resorts cozy cabins and picturesque stream. Real-life bald eagles enjoy this territory, too. I think what I like best about this photo, though, is the mushrooms growing out of the tree trunk occupied by the eagle. It seems to say, "This is Oregon, and it is wet." I really love all the water we get here. Blue skies are a treat, but a rainy day is a delight as well. Oregon is for wildlife.

Regal eagle... He must have been rather recently carved, as he still shows little signs of weathering. And speaking of weather, the mushrooms are a sign that it had recently rained. A gray sky now and then to bring rains to the vegetation does have its own charms, but some of the long gray spells can affect one's inner feelings, and it's funny, when you think of it, that it's called blue!
