During a weekend girls getaway with my mom and two of my sisters, we were lucky enough to catch sight of the Decorah Eagles nest with one of the adults keeping a close watch over their young brood.
My sister Molly hurriedly grabbed the binoculars from her vehicle to zoom in on the action. There were a number of others gathered around at this point so Molly passed her binoculars around so everyone else could see the eagle up close as well. It wasn’t until we were back in the car that she noticed in her excitement she’d only removed the cap from one of the lenses. It put a humorous exclamation mark on an already satisfying experience.
I snapped this photo of a young girl being guided by her mother as they both viewed the nest – made only a little easier by virtue of just a single open lens – as shown here in this picture!
