best picture ever

This may be the best picture of an eagle ever taken

Taken at the National Cemetery in Minneapolis on a June morning as it appeared in the Minneapolis Star/Tribune.

Talk about a picture being worth a thousand words!!! It says everything without a single word.

This should become an official Memorial Day, 4th of July and/or Veterans Day remembrance photo; Our symbol standing guard.

That prayer yesterday, now this.. by the way PSM.. good job giving attribution.. we forget that half the time, and good to know the where and who part of the story..

Gkids are still here.. tried to get them into "go fish" for money, but (lucky for me maybe) the school teacher Mom nixed the deal..

Everyone set for the debate tonight.. Fox, and with out Huntsman.. who i sorta liked..

Rate it

I think we all agree that this picture has a badassery rating of epic. I think we should honor it by rating it.

It's a fake...

I opened it up in a different window and zoomed up 400 %, you can see the difference in the Pixels all the way around the Eagle from the rest of the picture....

The person came up with a good picture none the less.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

Yeah, fake or not, still a good picture. BTW, LBC, I got to see a few bald eagles on my trip to Grand Rapids. Really breath taking.

shadows..

thats way to normal, and just odd enough to be a fact.. Not sure luck, seems to me that the shadows a bit longer than the others.. that and it appearing in a newspaper..

I mean sheesh bro anything with a "badassery rating of epic" gets a 10 from me..
