Don't Fence Me In: The American Bald Eagle

I have been out there getting lots of fence photos so I could participate with TexwisGirl. I have some nice ones of farm land not too far from my home but I chose the Denver Zoo fencing in the American Bald Eagle. Sad to me to see such a magnificent creature fenced in but for whatever reason perhaps he/she is safer here. While at the zoo someone said the larger of the two eagles would be the female and the smaller guy is the male. I find these eagles so fascinating and they make me so emotional. They stand for strength and truth and things that are good.

Isaiah 40:28-31New American Standard Bible (NASB)

28 Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become weary or tired.
His understanding is inscrutable.
29 He gives strength to the weary,
And to him who lacks might He increases power.
30 Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
31 Yet those who [a]wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will [b]mount up with [c]wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.

I understand they can harm you. Glad they are fenced in.

Good thing about zoos is, that there you get to see animals, you normally never get to see from up close.
Hope they got used to their cage life.
Have a beautiful day

Love the bible verses this morning...a nice reminder that He is all we need.

They are magnificent birds indeed. I'm sure that here at the zoo they need to be there for a reason, perhaps not able to be in the wild.

I just became a follower of your blog. I would love it if you would add a Follow By E-mail feature to your blog so I can get updates.

Good point there about the Eagles in captivity! I never thought about this before, but understand your sentiment.

This verse from Isaiah is a perfect accompaniment!

Lovely bird, pity he can not have a free life in the wild but good verse.

I love watching these birds flying - they soar almost effortlessly.
