Bald Eagle

It's my extreme pleasure to bring you more of the work of Steve from Out On The Prairie. This time he brings us an absolutely beautiful scene where a Bald Eagle looks over the river watching for the right fish. Ottumwa, Iowa is known as a good place to watch eagles along the Des Moines River until March.

Through amazing pictures like this one that features the bald eagle, and through his excellently captivating stories of life on the prairie, Steve's blog, Out On The Prairie has become extremely popular since I first met him. And it has happened for him much faster than most. Part of his secret to success is his excellent promotion of his blog, doing things like contributing these wonderful photos to our Free Wallpaper feature, and enthusiastically making his presence known throughout the blogging community. It also helps that he is such an all around good guy.
