Ladies and Gentlemen, this is Bielik, our national emblem bird. This was the first time I have ever seen one, let alone two ;) , in my life.
To encourage you to visit this place for birdwatching I've included a short video of the place where we watched the birds and the sunrise.


The road

This image was take on the same sunrise trip as the previous flower post (the photograph showing the last moments of the subject; 'Dad, I want to pick up some flowers for Mom', they made a wonderful wake up gift., as we came back home way before everybody else got up.)
The above has White Balance set to cloudy for that warm morning look, but I still am not sure if I prefer a postcard look or a chilly morning look with WB set to dayllight that's closer to the truth...
