This beautiful photo was submitted by Chuck Gunn (aka travelingcynic)
The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of American, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent.
And to think that the otherwise wise Benjamin suggested the turkey. Disregarding his suggestion was one of the things Congress got right.
Isn’t that the truth, Lynn? LOL! And isn’t it a beautiful photo?
Congress getting something right? Don’t give them a swelled head there, Lynn.
If Congress was involved it was probably a happy accident of Providence.
I love the turkey, but it would be like having a college mascot of a geoduck (Evergreen State). Go here http://www.evergreen.edu/athletics/geoduck.htm for a laugh out loud view of the Geoduck Fight Song.
Oh, yes, most important, BEAUTIFUL image. Any photographer would be proud.
