Empress

Perched in the top of a spruce tree overlooking the Clyde River this morning, the lady was clearly an old soul, the distilled essence (to me anyway) of spirit, wisdom, ferocity and grace, a veritable goddess among raptors, undisputed empress of the air.

I would like to sing her praises, but (alas) I cannot find the words for such magnificence.

She is quite magnificent - such dignity and presence.

She did grace you with her presence and posed beautifully for her photograph.

What an honor

...And ever watchful. It looks as though she has her eye on you.
