Old Plantation Pond

A view I’ve seen numerous times, but rarely photograph. Usually I am pointing higher up of this scene. Bald Eagles love to perch in these tree tops since the nest not far from here.

A larger bridge, same style, was recently destroyed when one of these large trees fell on it. The bridge was approximately 200 years old. Amazing how they are rebuilding it with old sunken Cypress tress, the same wood as here, just as old as the original bridge.

Magnolia Plantation (1676), Charleston, South Carolina.

I was thankful this Great Blue made no move to exit. These were grabbed as we escaped from the onslaught of starving mosquitoes. No time for any setup.

A few moments later I found why he was focused on something else. I noticed some big raptor sized bird moving through a pine stand on the waters edge.

While these are huge animals some of the raptors here are super sized too. A large hungry Eagle have been known to take a chance with them.
