For thus saith the LORD; Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread his wings over Moab. (Jeremiah 48:40 KJV)

I received an email newsletter from Raymond Barlow today with this photo. Oh, my! What a shot. Ray has been one of the first photographers that gave permission to use his photos on this blog. After sending a quick note up to him (Canada), that permission remains and here are some of his latest Bald Eagle photos.

Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven. (Proverbs 23:5 KJV)

Behold, he shall come up and fly as the eagle, and spread his wings over Bozrah: and at that day shall the heart of the mighty men of Edom be as the heart of a woman in her pangs. (Jeremiah 49:22 KJV)

And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (Revelation 12:14 KJV)

  1. I saw a bald eagle like this on my way to work this morning. It flew down out of a tree with a big stick and I could have got an amazing photo if I had not been driving. It just makes you praise the Lord when you see a magnificent creature like that!

  2. These are wonderful shots and verses. The verse that comes to mind for me always when I see eagles is Isaiah 40:31, ” But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

    • Thanks Mark.Check out Ray’s link. He even does workshops. This eagle is a captive one that he gets to use for training photographers in his workshops. I think.

  3. Several observations of majesty quickly come to mind: (1) the BALD EAGLE is majestic in its flying; (2) RAYMOND BARLOW has a majestic talent, that is majestic both artistically and technologically, for photographically “capturing” these Bald Eagles in flight; and (3) GOD’s majestic Creatorship, which includes (3a) His bioengineering work in the Bald Eagle’s software and hardware (design and construction), — as well as (3b) His bioengineering work [both software and hardware design and construction] in Raymond Barlow’s ability to imagine and to photograph the Bald Eagle, — as well as (3c) His bioengineering work [both software and hardware design and construction] in the inventor(s) of the photography equipment that Raymond Barlow used to photographically record the Bald Eagle flight images as photographs, — as well as (3d) His bioengineering work [both software and hardware design and construction] in equipping Lee Dusing to operate this ornithology/birdwatching website! That’s a lot of interrelated majesties that we can enjoy — just by viewing the spread-winged eagles in today’s photographs — as we read about the truly majestic Bald Eagle.
