My camera was at home. ..

As I took the dogs out for a run in the country, there was an eagle sitting in a field near the road.  Many times I have my camera with when I take the dogs for a run.

I have been getting some really cute pictures of the girls as they play in the country.  But Wednesday, I left my camera at home out of a bit of fear. And wouldn't you know that it was today that I saw this beautiful eagle.  (So did the dogs and their barking made the eagle take off.)

My fear came from this sad event: when I came home late Monday night, I was unloading the trunk of the car and the bag that I had the camera in dropped. I have a digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera.  When I got inside I tested it and this is what I got for a picture.  I knew right away that something had happened with the mirror inside the base of the camera.
I took a risk and removed the lens from the camera.  I carefully moved the mirror.  It had jammed into a non-moving spot.  It works again after I fixed it but I am a little more leery of taking it out. But because of that, I missed my opportunity to get some wonderful close-up shots of this beautiful eagle.
